Read Psalm 107:29 (

Have you ever been caught in a storm?
I’m talking about, dark clouds, loud thunder, scary lightning, that kind of storm?

I have, and it can be quite scary. Getting caught in a storm when there is no proper shelter in sight is even worse. Adding to that, the discomfort of being completely soaked. But despite the uncomfortable moment, we know that it will pass. It’s that knowledge of it passing that keeps us going on. Holding on.

So be encouraged, the Lord who allows the storm shall make it pass.



I’m not sure about you, but I’m a talker. I need to talk things out to feel better. Sometimes I don’t even realise that I’m anxious about something until I start talking about it.

God wants us to talk about our anxieties with Him. We’re coming up to that time of the year when it’s exams and end of year stress. Don’t carry the burden on your own. Get some friends together some mornings and do a Bible study or pray together.

God cares for you, He wants you to give Him all your fears and worries (1 Peter 5:7 –


Trust Him.

What are you placing your trust in?

Some people argue that Christians have “blind faith”. This is faith where there is no reasonable evidence for belief in something (let’s say God).

Do you think that’s true?

“In you, Lord my God, I put my trust” Psalm 25:1 (

When we put our trust in God, it’s not blind; it’s biblical faith given to us by God. It’s saying that no matter what is going on, we stand firm in trusting God, who has proven Himself to be real through the Bible and through our own experiences of Him.

Keep placing your trust in Him.



I’m sure you’ve heard people say that as Christians, we should rejoice in our hardships. That seems bizarre. When we’re in the thick of a struggle, it might seem impossible to rejoice.

But from experience, I want to encourage you. What Isaiah 40:29 ( says is true: God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. When we are at our lowest, that’s when God is able to show off.

Our struggles are hard, but God uses them as opportunities to show us His love for us. Our faith comes out stronger. And that can be something to rejoice about.
