Here are 5 tips to help you overcome tough times….

Tip 1
Make prayer your number one priority.
Prayer is a powerful weapon that God has given us and we are supposed to use it when life throws tough situations and very unexpected disappointments at us. The first thing we are supposed to do is get on our knees and pray to God for his guidance, for His strength, for His courage and for the will to get back up again.

Hebrews 5:7
During the days of Jesus’ earthly life, He offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the One who could save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence.

Even when God was facing trials and tribulations, even on the point of death Jesus didnt think of anything else but prayer. He prayed to God to help him through the hard time He was facing.

We should learn this from our father Jesus Christ that even when you are on point of death or your faced with the most difficult decisions or your faced with obstacles that are beyond your control. Always trust God and bow down on your knees and pray to God for direction and guidance and He will help you through it and give you the courage and strength to overcome.

Tip 2
Let go of the past hurt and embrace the new thing that God is doing in your life now.
Learn how to let go of the past hurt. Whatever has happened to you in the past do not let it destroy your future. Situations will have happened in your life to make you stronger so that you can be able to overcome whatever is thrown at you in the future.

God has given you victory over your past so stop looking back at it, because it will hinder you from receiving the greatest blessing that God has for you. Embrace your future and embrace your new reality because no darkness that rises up against you is ever going to win because God overcame your darkness and sin can no longer torment you again.

Tip 3
Forgive those that have hurt you.
When you’re facing hard times it’s very important for you to forgive every single person that has hurt you. You are not doing it for them you were doing it for yourself. When you forgive them you release yourself from any baggage that might have been lingering around and trying to hinder you from walking into your breakthrough.

Many times you have been bound by situations because of unforgiveness which has caused you to be bitter and caused you to act out in a certain way that was not of God. Forgiveness is the key to unlocking your blessing and to freeing yourself from any baggage of the past and it’s the key to freeing your mind from stress and depression. Because when you hold on to unforgiveness you’re holding onto pain and misery and all the heartache that comes with it. Today is a time for you to release yourself and free yourself from the bondage of forgiveness .

When you forgive everybody that has hurt you, you will notice a great change in your life things will start happening in your favor and blessings will start to flow because you have destroyed that thing that has been holding you in bondage for such a long time.

Tip 4
Spend more times in the presence of God when you are facing tough times.
It’s very important that when you’re going through tough times do not let your mind wander and let it be worried because the more you allow your mind to be everywhere and let everybody and anybody speak words that don’t agree with with what you’re going through you know it may put you in a predicament that you really want to get out of.

The key here is when you’re facing the toughest the toughest of times spend more time in the presence of God. Draw closer to God like never before and He will draw near to you. It’s in the tough times that God will speak to you the most. He will guide you he will listen to you he will direct you and above all he will show you how to overcome the tough times.

Shut out all the noise and spend time in the presence of God and listen to His voice alone because it’s His voice that is that your going to need to make it through the tough times because with God by your side you can overcome anything.
Reading God’s word will guide you, direct you, will give you the strength and endurance needed to run your race. It keeps your spiritual tank from reaching low. His presence will empower you and His Word will provide the nourishment for your soul.

Tip 5
Believe in God’s plan for your life
No matter how many tough times you have faced never stop believing on God’s plan for your life. Never give up even when the odds are against you and even when you face challenges. Always remember there is nothing that you face that alone. God is always in the fight with you and He will help you overcome. God has not brought you this far to forsake you now. His plan for you is to have a future and a hope, to be blessed and fulfill your purpose. Never stop believing in God’s plan for your life.

Change the story of your life

Whatever you have tried to do for years and you seem to be in the same place seeing no progress , no results, its time to change your story. Many times we get so stuck in life because of the choices we have made or may be we have chosen to do nothing. You have got to change your thinking and do something with your life and stop waiting for people to do things for you or rescue you.

When we look at the story of the man at the pool that got his healing- John 5:1-9 Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals. Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.”  At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. The day on which this took place was a Sabbath,

This man stood at the pool for 38 years to receive his healing, wow! that’s a long time and when Jesus asked him why he was there he said he had no one to help him into the water. He was making excuses of why he didn’t move or do something about it. How many times in your life have you sat there year after year and did nothing about your dreams and excepted someone to rescue you and nobody showed up. How many excuses have you made because you where afriad to purse your dreams?, Its time to do something about it. When you look at your situation and how many times you have been stuck year after year because you did nothing what God is saying to you right now is get up and walk. Don’t be like the man at the pool that had to wait 38 years to receive his miracle or live his dream. You can start living your dream today!.

God is asking you this, Do you want to get well?, Do you want healing?, Do you want a breakthrough?, Do you want to leave your dreams? Do you want to prosper and live the abundant life in Him?, If the answer is yes then God is saying to you right now get up and walk and receive your God given destiny.

Do not go to the grave with your dreams still in you, you’ve got to do something about it. Step out on faith and trust God and ask Him about your destiny and ask him to guide your path. Stop complaining about what is not happening in your life, stop doubting the power within you to do Gods will.

God chose you to make a difference in this world, so you have to ask yourself these questions, what has God called you to do? , what are you going to do about it?. Do not let your mess define you and keep you locked up in your mind and life and cleanse you mind with His word and allow him to purify your thoughts for His glory and allow God to clean you from the inside out. When you allow God in the chambers of your heart He will transform you and change your story for His glory.

Whatever God has put inside of you put it into action and pursue it. Do what God has put in you and what you are passionate about, it will make you very happy and you change peoples lives while doing it. You got it in you to accomplish your purpose. So don’t take your gifts for granted because they  will make room for and bring you before great men.

What you have gone through or what trials you have faced and everything you have had to endure your story doesn’t have to end up that way. It hurts and its hard i know but stop sitting on your mat, self-imprisoned by the circumstances of your life, Stop feeling sorry for yourself and stop waiting for someone to rescue you and take action. Remember Jesus did not  help the man into the water, He comes to him on his mat, the same mat and situation the man so wants to escape, God speaks words of life and resurrection. He told him get up and walk. God is breathing life in every dead situation in your life, everything that has held you bound for such a long time God is delivering and setting you free today. So get up an walk today and change the story of your life in Jesus name.
