When times are hard and things look bleak just remember that God has everything under control.
Remember Job? The devil did so many things to him: destroyed his property, had his livestock stolen, killed all his children, even gave his boils (which Job used a broken pot to scrape off of him because they were so painful) and yet God was in control of the situation, He told Satan that he could do anything to Job except kill him. It was all a test for Job. To see if he would stay true to God or deny Him.
And even through everything he went through Job never cursed God. He stayed true through the whole situation. And God blessed him for it in the end, blessing him with much more than he had in the beginning.
The moral of the story is to stay true to God through any trials you may be going through. God is always in control and will only let Satan do so much.
Read the book of Job.

Have a blessed day!
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. –Deuteronomy 31:8
