Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, whatever time it is, wherever and whoever you are, greetings and Shalom.
I write to you today in a bit of a rush actually, well not really, well maybe, who knows right? Sometimes we can get so consumed by trying to do something great that we can actually forget to just be great, actually living life the way we are supposed to live it and sadly that causes us to miss out on a lot and I often try and not make that mistake myself.
But sometimes I happen to get distracted by a dream, a goal, a strong aspiration of something that I really, really would like to do and before I know it I find myself asking the same question that I’ve decided to title this blog, what is it that you do when you have reached a point that seems hopeless, useless, maybe even pointless?
I know that this is something that I tend to speak of very often but you have to understand that I really personally know what this actually means, and I know that my family does, because all of our life no matter what it is that life has thrown our way we have always been able to keep right on moving with strength determination and perseverance most of all.
Without that I don’t think we would have gotten as far as we have, what now? I’m sure that there are many of you out there going through all kinds of trials and troubles and tribulations that maybe even I myself cannot even begin to comprehend what type of pain it is that you may be going through.
Perseverance my friends, that is a valuable key in overcoming all these obstacles that you may be facing right now, and I know that it’s hard to hear any type of encouragement from this 20 year old kid that you may think doesn’t know anything about what’s going on in life and definitely not anything about you.
Which is most likely true, I don’t know you, maybe I don’t but here’s something I am most certainly familiar with, pain, hurt heartache, struggles and hardships.
You may have heard me mention this before, maybe not and if you so happen to be a new reader, then just listen to what it is that I have to say on this matter, perhaps you will be inspired & encouraged to ‘keep moving’ in your troubled times.
Growing up way out in the middle of nowhere in a very, very, very small town in Southeast Missouri, my grandpa unable to help much anymore, I was 7 years old – my uncle was 10 – my mom was unable to help from disabilities and my great grandmother wasn’t so well either.
I watched my Grandma conquer some very dark times then, when we had only but certain things to eat, the electric was almost shut off multiple times but every time God would come sweeping in at the nick of time, having heard my grandma’s prayers.
We never starved and we always had enough, and every day my Grandma would tell me to ‘Believe’ she would tell me that if I had faith in the little things, then God would bless us with bigger things.
…the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. – Hebrews 11:1 K.J.V.
I have to say that from experiencing the miracles in my life personally, and in my families life, these are more than words that is often used as ‘pick me up’ words, these are actually the very core beliefs of faith.
I know there are many hurting right now, and while I’m not this Joel Osteen fluff and puff preacher, I’m also someone that does believe we can have comfort in our trials in pain – it’s not all ever gonna go away, not when we want it to and it will be there to cause us pain.
But we have a hope, we have peace and assurance found in Christ, I encourage you today to let not your heart be troubled during whatever hardships it is that you find yourself in right at this very moment, as matter of fact I ask that you be constantly reminded of God’s word’s to Paul.
Sufficient Grace –
His grace truly is sufficient to carry you through any type of pain it is that you may be going through your life at this very moment and while I mostly believe in spreading the core truth of God in dealing with peoples souls.
I also know that people need his strength to carry them through the trials in their life and I know that according to the scripture and from my own personal/family experience that he will.
Believe, have faith, keep moving on, never give up and never surrender because God is our mighty defender.
Until next time…
