    Thought provoking article.

    Being steadfast in faith during trials is so challenging but.

    When in ‘valley’, i guess nothing wrong if we get down on our knees and plea the ‘take this away from me’ prayers. That is just a natural human expression.

      Hey Wilson, thank you for reading.

      Yes, definitely, we agree. Praying the ‘take this away from me’ prayer is a natural human expression. Its an honest prayer. It’s what Jesus also prayed in Gethsemane.

      But the heart of what we are trying to say is that when we pray these prayers and God doesn’t ‘take this away’, we should not be discouraged.
      When those prayers of ‘take it away’ don’t seem to be getting answered, we should remember –

      “You’re going to want to go through painful stuff because that’s where the best comes in. That’s where your faith gets refined. That’s where your heart becomes tender, pure and gold.”
