A while back, God filled my thoughts with some words that have truly touched my heart. In fact, I have found myself reading these words over and over again throughout the week; so today, I thought I’d share them with you…and they read… “Focus on how you made it to where you are, rather than focusing on how hard it was to get there.”
So many times, I feel that we can become so overwhelmed by a circumstance; that before we realize it, we begin to get caught up in it, rather than actually seeing how we are still surviving these moments.
I remember a time in my own life, when I stood before a mirror in the bathroom…feeling battered and beaten up, by all that I had recently been through. As I stood there, I began to say to God… “I’m just not making it”…and do you know what He showed me from there? He showed me that I was still standing…walking…breathing…and functioning. Yes…maybe it wasn’t in the way that I would have liked it to be…but still, I was surviving those awful moments.
No matter what you are going through at this time, may I encourage you to not focus on everything that has gone wrong; but rather, focus on how you’ve made it to this place in your life…and just know that you are making it because there is a great and loving God holding you up, with arms that have truly become your strength…otherwise, you wouldn’t be where you are today.
Have a very blessed day…and ALWAYS know that there is a God who loves you and longs to be everything…for everything you need!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
