I am so happy today because I have kept my faith and stayed focus. That's a pretty hard thing to do and it takes a lot out of you physically and emotionally because you are putting your faith in someone you cannot see.
I grew up knowing the Lord and loving Him with all of my heart, but there have been days when I wondered whether or not he really knew I existed. You know how sometimes you pray for things and they never come to pass? You feel like you are wasting your time and energy.
But then, just when you are about to crumble, it happens! That one prayer that you poured out to God through tears comes to pass. Or, you get a phone call that reaffirms what you had been praying about. Is that God? Did He finally hear me?

God is good! Praise Him when times are good and bad.
