Having faith is putting your head on your desk and crying your eyes out over something you know you cannot change. But once your tears have dried, you wipe your face, take a deep breath and dig back into whatever you were facing before your meltdown because you know that God is in charge and he holds the world in his hands. He can handle the problem, he was just waiting for you to ask for his help.
Be brave, be strong. But most of all be faithful. Trust God to lead you through whatever comes. He can see the road beyond the muck and mire that’s dragging us down.
