Do you feel like you are in the greatest struggle of your life? Do you feel like it will never end? Does it feel like when you come out of one storm you go immediately into another? Well, I have some good news, it’s only a temporary. This too shall pass. Look how far you have come; you just can’t give up now!
Life can sometimes deal you cards that you just don’t want to play. There are times when you just can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. There will be times that you want to throw in the towel. Just remember that none of us are exempt from trials and tribulations. Giving your life to Christ does not mean that you will no longer experience challenging times, it opens you up to even more. The enemy now knows that he can’t have you and he will throw any and everything at you to make you believe that God does not love you, He does not care about you, and He is not with you.
I’ve heard many people say, “the struggle is real” and it is, but we should trust the struggle. I know it’s easier said than done, but if we never encounter theses struggles, would we be able to learn and grow? Would we be able to testify and let others know of God’s goodness? Would we be able to appreciate the strength, determination and motivation gained through these experiences? Would we be able to reach our greatest potential and be all that God has called and created us to be?
Trust the Struggle! It will benefit you in the long run. Do whatever you can to stay in the race just don’t stop, don’t turnaround and don’t give up. If you need to crawl, walk or jog until you pick the pace up again, then do just that. It’s your race at your pace! Giving up, is not an option. Hang in there and I promise your breakthrough is just around the corner! Trust your struggle!
