Q. Dear Terry, “I heard pomegranates are good for your overall health. I don’t really have the time or patience to eat pomegranates, so I’ve been drinking pomegranate juice. Because the juice has a lot of sugar, I’ve been looking into trying a pomegranate powder or supplement. Do you have any advice on pomegranate supplements?” – Leilani L., Hilo, HI
Q. Dear Terry, “My 10-year-old son has anxiety and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It’s very difficult for him to focus because of the ADHD and anxiety. He’s really smart, but school has been really difficult for him. What recommendations do you have for him?”– P.M., Burlington, VT
Q. Dear Terry, “My husband gets really bad heartburn at night. We’ve started eating dinner earlier and he does a good job of avoiding foods that usually cause heartburn. But, he still has symptoms and he’s a little frustrated. Is there anything else he can try?” – Chloe F., Pittsburgh, PA
There are things that you’re believing for—you know God has planted those seeds. The start is exciting, and the end will be rewarding; but the truth is, the middle can be messy. In some way we’re all in the middle; we’re all on a journey. You know God gave you a promise, but every circumstance says just the opposite. Over time it’s easy to give up and think, “There are too many obstacles. It’s never going to happen.”
When you study the heroes of faith, one common denominator you’ll find is that they had faith in the middle. When the promise seemed impossible, they kept moving forward, knowing it was a part of the process. They refused to surrender to the trials or dark places. Yes, they had their moments. At times worry would come, fear would come, doubt would come, but they didn’t allow it to stay. They stirred their faith back up and believed that the promise would happen. Now do your part as they did—have faith in the middle.

Father, thank You that You are with me through every difficulty and challenge I go through. Thank You for the promises You have given me for my journey, and that You are working behind the scenes for my good right now. I will have faith for the middle. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you…
