Sometimes we feel helpless when lIfe hands out a difficulty that zaps all our strength. That kind of experience is inevitable, and each of us deals with it differently.
There are those who give in and give up and leave life’s path behind. Others pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and move forward. Some people fight back with every ounce of strength they can muster and refuse to go down. Life will bring us those hard times. Each of us will choose whether we can continue on life’s pathway or forsake the path and quit..
Alone, we simply cannot make it through on our worst days. But people who trust in God are not alone. People who trust in God keep on keeping on when other people want to give up. People who trust in God are persistent and determined to survive.
The Bible instructs us to see our current problem as a temporary one. If you are facing difficult times right now, lean on this passage from 2 Corinthians 4:
This is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long, but they will produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever! So we don’t look at the trouble we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT)
Sometimes the strength within you is not a fiery flame for all to see. It is just a tiny spark that whispers ever so softly, “You got this. Keep going.” (Abuse No More)
