THERE IS BEAUTY IN YOUR BROKENESS
Sometimes it's so easy to want to give up and do things the easy way ( the path of least resistance). The friends begin to disappear, the tears begin to increase. The pain! A lot of pain you just can't bear! At that very moment when you feel like you can't take it anymore and you just want to stop everything, I think you should pause and think for a moment "why did I ever start this in the first place?"Why am I singing?"Why am I dancing?"Why does it feel so hard?"
You have to remember that it's not just about you, it's about the lives you want to change, that person you want to make smile, that family that would be transformed by your decision to forge ahead. Trust me the devil is watching, and he hates what you are doing, he hates that you love God so much. He would bring the house down if he has to, to make you give up, to make you feel you are all alone, that God is not there. Yes there is so much going on in your life and it's so easy to believe that despite the fact that you are praying and fasting, it still feels like nothing is happening!
Dear friend, be strong, be brave because you are not alone. You are never alone, God is always with you. Remember that "we walk by faith and not by sight". We must believe, yes we must keep believing because it's through Faith that we can move God.
God loves you so much, if only you know the plans and purpose that He has for you. Many of us grow up doubting the love of God because of the relationships we have or have had with others. Broken relationships, hurt from others, or even our own bad choices can cause us to doubt why God would choose to love us.
Sometimes we are misguided into thinking that we need to earn God's love. God demonstrated the greatest act of love when Jesus Christ died on the cross for us. We no longer have to work towards being loved, it is given freely for all. The fact that Jesus Christ endured all that He did so you can have everlasting life, hope and salvation in Him should be a driving force in ensuring you don't give up on your journey my friend! Again I say, "remember why you started and never give up".
The Bible says if for you, who can be against you??? Not even the devil in hell can take you or separate you from God's love for you.
When we have God on our side, we lack nothing because he provides all our needs, he heals us, protects us, and guides us in all truth.
The lord is your shepherd and you shall lack nothing.
