When Life Seems Difficult

It’s true. As a matter of fact, God’s presence should be more evident when life is hard. In our weakness, we are made strong. The closest I’ve ever felt to the Lord has been when times were tough, when it seemed there was no way out, no hope, and like I shouldn’t have faith, I heard God’s whispers in those days the most. As a child, I would go on bike rides nightly. I liked to experience the peace and be outside. I’d ride up and down our street until the sun went down. I vividly remember the Lord telling me, ‘This road will not be easy, Zina, but I will never leave you nor forsake you. In the end, you will be with me!’ It is in the ‘difficult’ times that I have thrived.💙🤍

I'm a teacher, writer, and speaker. I got into publishing when I joined a Christian writers' group online where I met a few select authors who mentored me. My life changed. Through classes, webinars, and friendly emails, I've been encouraged to write. I started my blog to cope with my spinal injury in hopes of helping people.
