Hi, Personally? Okay! 

I have a hero, one who faces trials worse than anything I would wish on an enemy. She does it with a smile, with humor and determined perseverance to do all that she does to the glory of God, and be a great witness of Jesus, giving testimony in word and deed.

Through it all she says sincerely, "I love my life I have a good time". She serves her God, her family, has adopted children, is married, teaches high school, and just lives her life to the very fullest extent possible.

For me to then cry out about my own trials, with  lamenting, complaining, and not instead counting it all for joy in spite of the pain of it, would shame me before my creator when I do come to my own trial and judgement of the saints in Christ. So I try to emulate what I see in this frail woman of such great strength  and endurance. Strength of faith and endurance to run the race and finish well, for the glory of God.

i remember Gods promises and Trust Him.  I pray.  I praise.  The Book says God inhabits the praises of His people.  I give thanks. 

However our strength is The Lord.  by His Spirit we can do it.  its never easy but its good to have a Helper.

I find strength in various ways. Primary is very candid, very private prayer. I also read books about other Christians who have been through very serious challenges and draw inspiration from their faith and faithfulness.
