It can be tough when you’re struggling to cope with what life is throwing your way, people you have to work with or things in general just don’t seem to be going your way. However it’s during times of difficulty that your true faith in God will shine through…

1 Peter 2:20 (The Message)

You who are servants, be good servants to your masters—not just to good masters, but also to bad ones. What counts is that you put up with it for God’s sake when you’re treated badly for no good reason. There’s no particular virtue in accepting punishment that you well deserve. But if you’re treated badly for good behavior and continue in spite of it to be a good servant, that is what counts with God.

Maybe in life we’re never rewarded for our good deeds or our good works, but don’t despair, God notices. God cares that you continue to do good during times of difficulty, so have patience, and your relationship with God will flourish even during the darkest of times.
