I am praying for you as you face the hard of life.
When it all seems impossible, when nothing seems to be like it should be, I’ve learned God always, and I mean always, breaks through it all, providing a way. There’s so much to lose when you and I give up on God. Because. God never gives up on anyone.
Trust God. And. Rather than giving up to the hard of life, I encourage you to keep living, refusing to be stuck in it all. Do some things that help you to live well. And. I encourage you to remember that no matter the circumstance, no matter the adversity, the purpose given to you does not change. So. Keep your purpose God has given you in front of you every day. It makes a big difference when life is purposeful.
The book of Philippians gives that very hope. The author, the Apostle Paul, wrote the book from prison, doing what he was called to do, trusting God in the details. He wrote this from prison:
6 I am confident that the Creator, who has begun such a great work among you, will not stop in mid-design but will keep perfecting you until the day Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King, returns to redeem the world (Philippians 1:6, The Voice).
Centuries and centuries later, his writing continues to impact humanity. God made a way for the Apostle Paul to impact countless individuals with the truth of Christ despite being imprisoned. It was his purpose. And. God is doing the same in your life. I have no doubt in this matter.
When the hard of life has become overwhelming, I have had to make myself move away from doubt and choose trust. It’s hard; however, it’s possible to trust God to be at work. Because. In reality, God is at work. And the amazing thing is, it’s not necessary to try to cross over the line from doubt to trust by yourself, God will give you the strength to trust.
So. Trust God. Don’t give up. I’m praying you will be confident in God and know this is a new day for you. It matters–Kerrie
