Family Reflection Video: Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Will

Family Reflection Video: Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Will

prayer  |  inspiration  |  strength and hope

Life is full of valleys and peaks, is it not? We all experience the wonderful view during the highs, but there is also darkness in the terrible lows.

Today, on the feast of St. Luke, I invite you to reflect on your faithfulness to your relationships with God, family and friends … not only in good times, but also in the bad times.

My friends, we aren’t on our own. God provides us with faithful companions in our pilgrimage of life. The question is can we stand with each other, trusting in God’s promise that we are not alone even on our darkest days?

I urge you to take a few minutes every morning to connect and build your trust with God. Maybe even try turning off your television tonight to deepen the relationships around you. Let us know what happens in the comment space below!

As always, thank you for listening in! I will continue to pray for you and your families.
