In the hard times, God is still there Giving me the chance to grow Discover the questions I need to ask And giving me the answers I request In the hard times, God is alive Showing me that I’ve grown And helping me to finally become Someone worthy of His time In the hard times, God is pursuing Reaching out to me with love Helping me to realize my mistakes And erase the pain of the past In the hard times, God is revealing New ways of opening up my spirit And giving generously of myself To those who need a friend the most In the hard times, God is whispering Perfect inspiration into my heart Filling me with wisdom and beauty That only He can possibly stimulate In the hard times, God is welcoming Me into His presence where I can find Peace that surpasses all understanding Serenity that is forever alive inside me In the hard times, God is loving me With a love that is unconditional and living Abiding within with His Holy Spirit Where I can feel certain I have a true friend In the hard times, God is reminding me That this time is truly an encouraging blessing A second chance to learn a lesson and arrive At the destination of glorious love He’s expressing In the hard times, God gives more than hope He gives faith and love and all that is so good He never punishes through the hard times But gives us a sense of Himself to see us through The hard times are merely opportunities to grow For I know the thoughts I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. ~. Jeremiah 29:11

We must always experience some hard times. Prayer and perseverance are the only solution.

We do not recognize the gift of a hard time when it happens, but later we do. "In the hard times, God is whispering Perfect inspiration into my heart Filling me with wisdom and beauty That only He can possibly stimulate" True!
