Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. -Romans 5:1-5

The past few weeks have been a great struggle for me. I've had a lot to deal with. And even after figuring a few things out, I still felt like I was at a standstill and going nowhere with the pain that I was feeling. I don't like times like these where I feel so helpless. I want things to work out. I want things to be 'okay'. I question why things have to happen the way that they do. Why do I have to feel this way? Why do I hurt so badly? It's times like these that God breaks me. He wants me to rely fully on Him no matter if my situation is good or bad--He wants me to want Him. I'm hurting, but this pain is only temporary...but God--He is eternal. He is all I need.
