Whenever it seems like life is a struggle always remember that better things are coming. As a child we struggle with events that are beyond our control, with poverty, neglect, and even abuse all too common for many children. Many adults are extremely tired of working constantly and yet always being broke at the end of the week once the bills are paid. Some barely manage to get from one week to the next, and after paying the bills there may be little left over to put food on the table much less for any small luxuries or extras. Life can be hard at times, and these times are when patience and a strong faith are the most important. Keep praising the lord and look at what you do have instead of focusing on what you feel is missing, things will get better as long as you are patient.
For many people childhood is not all pleasant memories. For kids who are bullied, ostracized, or made outcasts for some reason the childhood and adolescent years can be horrible. When you have a strong faith in god this will carry you through even the worst times, and the lord will help you be patient until you reach adulthood and you have better days. Too often people despair, with some actually taking their own lives, because they do not have the necessary patience and they do not have enough faith that their prayers will be answered. No matter how bad things seem they will get better, you just need to keep praying to the lord and have patience until they do.
