Ready to Give up?

I can relate.  I get to a point where I am so over it already.  I AM DONE!  And then I read God's word.  He always has a timely word for us doesn't He?

I read these 2 scriptures this week that remind me that God is in control and even if humanly, things seem to be at an end, God is far from done:

Isaiah 43 v 18-19:  (18) Do not [earnestly] remember the former things;  neither consider the things of old.  (19) Behold, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it?  I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

And this scripture:

Romans 4 v 18:  [For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised, so [numberless] shall your descendants be.  

Use this same scripture and fill in what it is you feel you have no human hope for, for example:

For Wendy, human reason for hope being gone, hope in faith that she should be a content and happy wife and mother, as she had been promised, so numberless shall your joyful moments be.

Now you try it....

How does that boost your faith?

I hope I encouraged you this week to hold fast in faith to what the Lord has promised you.  He is not a man that He should lie, nor the son of man that He won't do what He says He will do.  (Numbers 23v19)

God bless

With each post I do this year I am going to end off with #wisdom. This will be where I try to understand the wisdom of what the Lord is teaching here.

#wisdom What is the Lord teaching me here about wisdom?

The thing I learned with regards to wisdom here, is that the scriptures, all of it, Old and New Testament, is written for each and everyone of us.  Someone once said to me that Psalms was relevant to David.  Um yes, but so is it relevant to us.  EVERY WORD!  Every Word in scripture is for our growth, to convict us, to convince us, to show God's love for us!  It is our user manual on how to live every day with every issue.


  1. Oh, dear friend! You always seem to know exactly what to say to encourage me. YES, I have felt very much like giving up. This week has been some of the hardest days to keep encouraged. I know God has a plan. I know He is working. It is just so hard when we cannot see it. I cling to your words today and thank you for infusing fresh hope into my situation. I LOVE the verses you shared. God bless you in your own battles, also.

    1. Hi Cheryl, I love when God does that. He certainly knew the need for us women to be encouraged by other women. I am so grateful for this world of wonderful Godly women bloggers. They have rescued my sanity more than once over the last few years :)
      God bless

  2. Good wisdom and good encouragement! I live in hope that each of my sons lives full-in for God. I live in hope that our nation's government will support Israel! I might not see it right now, but I'm believing it!

    1. HI Maryleigh, I too live in hope for our country, although at times I wonder. But my job is to pray for those in power. Same too for our children. I can only pray because at the end of the day, they have to make their own choices and decisions which we might not like.... but there is hope and faith in the One Who made them
      God bless my friend
