Yes, we will experience trials. There will always be something, but if we strive to plant ourselves by the living water, during the trails we will remain steadfast in His supernatural strength and will be able to conquer anything that comes our way.

Between the lines, I could read the tears he cried over me in prayer, advocating for God to save his little girl’s life. I could sense his utter defeat in attempting to fix me, and how he could only resort to trust the Creator of the universe to take things into His own hands.

Freedom is not something that is just handed to you. You have to work and believe that you can get that peace of mind and that happiness that you've longed for, for so long. God has a good plan for your life, and He still has so much in store for you, whether you know it or not!
As Martin Luther King Jr. once said in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable…every step toward the goal of justice requires the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” We all have something to contribute and offer – each day we can pray, learn something new, support an initiative, share and discuss this issue, volunteer our time with local organizations, and so much more. We can all do something to work toward ending slavery and take part in God’s work of redemption.
