During your lifetime you will find your faith being severely tested. This can show up as yourself at a crossroad, being outcasted, loss of a job etc. It's during these storms that your strength will be revealed. When everything you once knew is no longer, you must keep in mind that this is temporary and it shall pass. But most importantly, you're heading for a breakthrough. To strengthen your faith, you must believe that your current predicament is just as equally necessary as the good times; it's all for your highest good. Alter your perception so you can see the silver lining.
Sometimes it's just a matter of timing, but while you're weathering this storm, it's shaping your character; your self-belief is becoming stronger, your being forced to be creative about your situation, you're learning to use discernment when it comes to people, you're learning to trust your intuition etc.
The duality in life shows up as opposites: hot and cold, good and bad, above and below etc. Everything has its place and one cannot exist without the other. We just need to adapt to make the best of what life throws at us. So, ask yourself how you can better your stormy period. It reminds me of the children's book 'we're going on a bear hunt' by Michael Rosen. I haven't read the book since I was a child but I do remember how determined the children were to go on a bear hunt, that it didn't matter what obstacles they faced, they always found a way to overcome them. They assessed their surroundings and adapted to it, to get what they wanted. Where there's a will, there's a way. Whatever you do, just don't give up!
