The illusion that life should be an easy, painless, air-cushioned ride, makes you vulnerable to discouragement, disillusionment and defeat in hard times. The truth is, tough times don’t last but tough people do! And tough people practice self-denial and self-control. It’s their spiritual muscle for handling life’s hardships. The Bible says, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and SELF-CONTROL” (Gal 5:22). God’s Spirit will make you tough enough to control your greatest weakness - YOURSELF -the thing that ultimately defeats you in the tough times. Work it out today loved ones
