Hello everyone...and a "Happy...Happy Wednesday" to you all! I truly hope that your day is off to a good start! This morning, I woke up to a chilly start to my day...but the sun is beginning to shine through the fog...and it appears as though it's going to be another beautiful autumn day, for me to enjoy...praise God!!
You know...it's almost impossible for us to escape the difficult moments that enter our lives. Even though we try to ignore what is happening...it's happening. Moments like these can work overtime on us, as a means of taking us down to nothing...to the place where we grow weary and discouraged; but I have come to see numerous times...that when Christ is living in our hearts; then we can continue on. Just think...our desire alone can give us strength, as God sees these desires, as messages from the heart...and when He sees that we still desire to push through these difficult times; He does step in and give us a perfect strength that can help us to continually press on.
As I view my life each day...I see a woman who struggles everyday...and I mean everyday. She lives almost continually in pain...and the tiredness that attempts to keep her low; but the desire I have to serve God and help others in need; is truly greater than the pain and tiredness I experience. More and more, I see how God has truly given me the strength to write and do many things...despite what I'm going through at the time...and that is because I have a desire to continue on, rather than give up...praise Him!
You know...I think that we fail at pressing on...because we are too focused on where the symptoms of our problems are leading us; but we must remember that when we choose to override these difficult times; that God will be there, to give us the strength we need to continue on.
As we continue our journey with God today...I pray that our desires will become greater than what the problem is attempting to convey to us...and that we will in turn, find the strength to move forward in life...and never give into what is standing before us.
May your day be truly blessed by God...and may He ALWAYS give you the strength to press on! Have a great Wednesday...and I will hope to see you again this evening!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
