I SO want to give up. I am tired! I am drained! I am at the end of myself! (in my humble opinion). Obviously God thinks (knows) I can cope with this and more! Well, truly, with HIM, I can! My feelings are just kicking and screaming and objecting to the situations I find myself in!
Having said all that, I believe God caused me to hear this to encourage me. "Tracy, don't give up! I am with you. I am your strength, lean on Me, let Me fight for you, you are Mine."
Isn't it amazing when you have a "moment" between drying your hair and brushing your teeth where God drops something into your spirit that uplifts, encourages, strengthens you.... so you can take the next step, turn the next corner, inhale the next breath?! God's love is amazing....
My encouragement to you is "Don't give up". All is not as it seems. Your growth comes from pushing through! When you give up you can regress in your walk! Focus on God's truth.
Rom 5 v 3-4: ...we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; (4) and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
In Tim 3 v 10+11 Paul lists all he has been through and ends with..."and out of them all the Lord delivered me."
Yes, the Lord will deliver us out of all out circumstances. So long as we don't give up!
God bless friends
