Time to start off your week with a little inspiration. I was recently watching one of Joyce Meyer's messages about patience and accepting what God has in store for us. She mentioned that a lot of times people ask for patience without realizing that there has to be some sort of trial or tribulation in their lives in order for them to gain this virtue. Yes it sucks and things can get overwhelming but the trick is to hang on for dear life to your faith and know that God will in fact get you through whatever battle you're facing.
See it as a way to dig deep down and show how strong you can be. I know this is easier said than done and Lord knows I've been faced with more than I thought I could bare but I know that my faith and love in God was the only thing that got me through.
I came across this quote and thought it was perfect to go along with this post:
“I used to hurt so badly that I'd ask God why, what have I done to deserve any of this? I feel now He was preparing me for this, for the future. That's the way I see it.” - Eden Phillpotts
I hope this message inspires you to hang on and never give up because whatever it is you're going through, the reward will be that much sweeter once you give it all over to God and trust that he will in fact see you through the battle.
Happy Monday everyone!
Have a blessed and prosperous week. :)
