Remaining spiritual and keeping faith in God can be difficult at times, especially when times are at their toughest. Take the millions of people affected by the Gulf oil spill. It must be very difficult for them to face every day and hold strong to their beliefs that everything will be alright. Everyone has their morals and beliefs tested at certain points in their life, but the key is knowing how to stay strong in the face of adversity. Here’s five ways to remain strong in spirit when obstacles present themselves:

1) Be upbeat and positive. Have some stamina to endure the tough times. Remember what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.

2) Keep in mind the grand scheme of things. Believe it will all be ok.

3) Cook and even grow your own food. This is an interesting one that can pay dividends. Growing your own food can keep you occupied  for a long time.
4) Read a book. It could be anything, whatever interests you the most. For some it’s the suspense novels. For others it’s romance novels. Whatever you enjoy, just wrap yourself up in a good book and let your mind drift away from the problems.
5) Don’t get distracted from what matters. Get your priorities right.
Remember, even though things may not seem like they are going to work out, in the end the universe tends to unfold as it should.
