Fight the battle silently with the Lord

“Pray.” (Photo by Anna Tarazevich from Pexels)We can face our battles silently but never win over them without God. It is okay if you do not want others to know about your struggles or sufferings, but never exclude God in the picture. 

No fight is ever won without God. We will remain defeated and hurt if we let our pride go over our heads. We must surrender our battles to God without screaming our problems to the world.
