Are you going through a spiritual crisis? Are you at a standstill in your spiritual life? I have experienced both of these. I was being called to a higher place. Yet, I was not certain as to how I would get there. I went through some trials and even experienced times where I felt afraid and unloved. But God had a plan and a purpose for my life. He showed me love through people. He trained me, chastised me and made me stronger through a divine connection. If it were not for this connection I don't know where I would be. So to you I say to you as you go through your trial and face your fears, stay focused on God.
