I won't give up

Blow by blow I wonder what he is thinking. Does he honestly think I'm going to just throw my faith out the window just because things aren't going my way. Within the past 2 weeks, two cars have been wrecked, one car is having big issues, there is major financial shortage, legal stuff....I could go on and on. Don't get me wrong, I'm fighting every second to not blame and give up and just say why me. The spiritual realm is all too real right now. I know our family is being attacked. Satan has an agenda with us but I don't think he realizes how hard we are going to fight. The Cathcart's will not be defeated, because God is on our side :) I will not give up on God because of unfortunate circumstances. He is real. His provision is real. His healing is real. His love is real. His grace is real and I'm going to do my best to show He is real and just in all things, even the horrible ones. Again I'm not going to waste a good crisis. Whatever good comes out of this, I know I will be able to say it was worth it.
