COT: Not every day is going to be easy. Life throws you many challenges, and you need to choose how you will respond.
“Every storm runs out of rain, just like every dark night turns into day.” Gary Allen.
Beta spoke of adversity in his own life, loss of loved ones and hard times; he then turned to the story of Job from the Bible. If you try to tackle things on your own, you will not succeed. Turn to others when you need help and also be willing to help others.
