Oftentimes, we doubt if we will ever get out of the mess that we are currently in. Life seems so overwhelming at times that we almost surrender with our arms up high to the thought that we will never get through it all.
You may be going through a breakup, certain adjustments, or facing a ton of struggles in life, but let me tell you this: there is certainly more to life than the situation you are currently in.
We find our present situation devastating because of the hardships it causes us. Sending us fainting emotions that definitely bring us to our knees. We doubt if we will ever overcome these struggles for the end always seems so far.
At first, it is almost easy to say that there is still hope behind every smile that we show to the world everyday as we try to conceal every emotion that slowly tears us apart inside. But as time goes by, the situation worsens and the tiniest hope that we hold on to for a certain period of time seems to drift farther and father each day.
The probability of overcoming such distress seems to fade little by little.
But God is telling you today to hold on.
Hold on to His promise that He will help you get through all these things that stress you.
Hold on to His righteous hand that is caring enough to guide your steps everyday as you continue your walk with Him.
Hold on to the assurance of tomorrow that He is about to bless you with.
Do not focus on the distress of today. It is even more exciting to look forward to the success of tomorrow rather than worrying about the uncertainties that your present issue is giving you.
Worrying won’t give you any benefit, anyway.
“If you have time to worry, then you have a time to pray”.
Never give the enemy the satisfaction of watching you suffer. Make it see that you are confident and secure that you have a great God who walks with you along every circumstance.
God desires you to put your complete trust in Him.
You life doesn’t end here. There are still a lot of great things in store for you in the future.
There are a lot of people out there waiting for you to come into their lives and make it even better.
You are the answer to other people’s prayers. And how will you be able to make that possible if you will wear your self out with your current situation?
Always try to be the best of your self. And most of all, for your future self.
What you are stressing your self with today will give a huge impact to who you will be tomorrow. With what are you molding your future self today?
