Sometimes it's easy to give up. To tell yourself that it's not worth it. Because that's the easy way.It's not easy-going through trials. It's not easy-going through the path God has set. Sometimes it's hard, and you don't see the point. You think if God cared, he'd set a new path. If He truly loved you, He wouldn't let this happen. He wouldn't want you to go through this.I know. Within the past week I've yelled at God. I've been so mad at Him for everything that's happening in my life; so I know its hard.
To wake up, and go forward. Whether it's waking up and going to the job you hate, and don't understand why God didn't give you the promotion, or another job offer. To look at your bank account, and wonder why He lets you struggle financially. Maybe you had another fight with your spouse and think to yourself, 'this counseling isn't working, so maybe God doesn't care about the marriage'. You get another failing grade in school, and don't understand why all the studying and prayers didn't help you pass.I think sometimes we forget that God planned our life. He knew us before we were even born. He planned our life so precisely and perfect, just the way He wanted.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
If He planned your life, then He knows the struggles you're facing. He knew them before you did. He isn't ignoring your prayers, or not seeing your tears. He hears you, and He is with you.
Giving up is the easy route, but continuing and relying on God, is the best route. Although it might be hard, it's a route that won't fail. He won't fail you. So whatever you're going through, trust in Him, and don't give up. There's a light at the end of the tunnel, just look, and you'll see it. God is right there, ready to help you conquer this. He won't forsake you, and He won't let you fail. Trust Him, and know it will be okay.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
