Some days life can be so exhausting. We may look around and think “how did things get so out of hand?” We are overwhelmed with the responsibilities that we have piled up on our self…and we don’t know how to fix it. It may simply be that your life has made a turn in the wrong direction…and you don’t know how to redirect to make it better. We have all faced those times of despair…those times when you feel completely alone…even if other people are surrounding you. It is important to recognize this season in your life…as a season that most everyone has been through at least once. You can and you will press through this. The key is to admit you cannot do it alone. Begin by praying to God for help and guidance. You may be so frustrated…that you don’t think you have the ability to pray. Pray something…even if you don’t feel like it. Tell God you want a new direction. Ask Him to place people in your path that will encourage and guide you slowly. Seek God on a daily basis…and shove out the doubt that may linger in your mind. If you will commit to even two minutes of prayer each morning…God will show up. He is waiting for you to allow Him to begin a transformation in your life. Trust Him…give Him time…and you will be amazed at what you will overcome!
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ISAIAH 41:10
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 CORINTHIANS 4:16-18
God is with us.
