In spite of life's distressing circumstances. Never quit to trust in God. For, he (God) will surely take care of you sooner or later. Oh! yes, he can and he will do just that. But, provided you will continually trust in him in toto, scripture reference Nahum 1: 7). Besides, he (God) has already taken care of those whose conditions/circumstances were worser/more miserable than yours e.g. Jabez, Esther, Modecaih among others. So, keep on trusting in him (God) even against all odds.
– Emeasoba George
