With the days that we are living in now, the enemy of hell is
hardest to discourage God's people from being all that God wishes
them to be. The Lord has been speaking to my heart to encourage

but rather to stay strong in Him and continue to let God lead the
Jesus says in Matthew 11:28 "Come unto me, all ye that labour and
laden, and I will give you rest." Every time we feel discouraged
like giving up on this life because of the trouble that we
we are to come to the Lord and ask for His comfort and strength so
may gain encouragement to continue in our fight of faith. Remind
that He is your comforter and helper and in God alone there is
fulness of Joy.
I hope you'll be encouraged by this message that shows how God is
able to use us even though we may seem imperfect and unusable in

Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth,
