Sometimes life things don’t go the way we plan. Guaranteed for refill motivated and empowered and we push and push and then nothing. Those are the hardest time for me. I muster up the strength and the time and I push and I grit and I see nothing from it. I’m highly motivated by meeting the goals and seeing something come from what I’m working. When on I don’t; I don’t sit well.
Ah but I don’t write this to be negative, the point is exactly the opposite! It is in these moments, it is in these times, that I realize that I have taken on the burden of life by myself!
I picked up my bags. I took off running ahead of where I need to be alone without the one I need. These moments of drain and self doubt, it is in these moments, that I know and stop, “oh I need to rest. I need to wait. I need to trust.”
So before I knew God these are the times that would bring me down. These were the times that I would break and these are the times that I would just want to quit. However now that I know the Lord my God my Father, my Comforter, my Protector, my Provider; I realize when I have pushed myself and I ran to the fullest and I hit the wall and I stop and I start to feel discouraged; it is time for me to rest. Not quit. To look up and trust. Look up because it is in this time but I know I know I know God will never let me go! Thank you Jesus!
God’s promises always come true. As long as I am doing what I am called to do and staying in relationship with God. The discouragement will melt away. I pretty sure it is the devil whispering in my ear that I’m not enough. That I have once again failed. But now I am created new in the image of God wash clean of my sins and so are you if you’ve been baptized and you except His love! We are no longer dead but made clean and new and beautiful in His image!
God’s plans are better and more than you or I could ever think or imagine. God has us in the palm of His hand!
Today look up and Pray
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7 NIV
And know He will be there and you will fulfill every step, every plan, and His promises will always come to be!
21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21 NIV)
