We all have bad days, weeks, sometimes months, even a bad year. Yet the goal is to make it better, you never want to stay there. Sometimes we even have bad seasons of the year or of our lives. I try to be as positive as possible even when things are not going as I would like. I would rather refer to the bad times a challenging times. I prefer the term challenging because I feel accomplished when I conquer a challenge. I would have to describe the last two years as a season of ups and downs. The good thing is even when the challenging down times came I never stayed there. That is a testament to my growth, because I know I had seasons of depression and that was tough but I know I have been delivered from depression.
I am now a person who has learned how to pray my way through the storms or challenges. I don’t allow myself to get to a point where I could get down and out and take myself back to depression. We all must strive to be a better version of ourselves. We should never be stagnant in anything especially the negative aspects of life. Prayer and my relationship with Christ is what gets me through the challenging times of life.
I strongly advise those who don’t have a constant prayer life and relationship with Christ get it and build that relationship. When your faith is Christ and you know He will get you through you can conquer every challenge that comes your way. God is the source and strength of my life I wouldn’t be who I am and where I am without Him. This scripture is a great one to focus on
John 14:12-15 KJV  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  If ye love me, keep my commandments. …
God ask for us to believe in him and keep his commandments and He does above and beyond all that we could ask or think. He is the conqueror of my challeneges.
