It has been a really, really long week, and I need to admit that it is not the easiest week.. Tired and stressed – but I remembered God’s faithfulness and His goodness for the past 15 years of my life, I remembered what He had done for me, the miracles, the breakthroughs, the victories, the prayers that were answered, the mountains that I have moved, the valleys that I have conquered..
I remembered His love, and how He never gave up on me, how He encouraged me in my darkest times.. And I just knew that while I may be going through a tiring and exhausting week, it doesn’t give me the right to bring those darkness to the people around me, it doesn’t give me the right to give up loving and serving..
Trembling, but I’ll trust God, and I’ll still give my best to serve God.. Today, I still believe in His power, His strength, and I still have faith that just as I have overcame all the things I did in the past, I’ll overcome them now, too!
Here’s a song that always encourages me… and a verse that reminds me to rely on His strength and not mine 🙂
Parachute Band – You Remain
“Jesus You’ve carried me this far
I’ll hold on to this hope inside my heart
When all else fades
Your hands that made me
Carry me still
Your every promise
Will be fulfilled”
And it happened, as they fled before Israel and were on the descent of Beth Horon, that the Lord cast down large hailstones from heaven on them as far as Azekah, and they died.There were more who died from the hailstones than the children of Israel killed with the sword.
Relying on God because with God, all things are possible. Gonna conquer!! Never going to stop fighting, stop giving, stop serving.. He is good. And I have nothing to fear. 🙂 And if you are reading this, and you are feeling pretty down yourself, don’t give up because the darkest nights will end and the sun will rise. You may not see the light right now, but you will see it soon enough.. 🙂
Hercules said “I am on my way. I can go the distance. I don’t care how far, somehow I’ll be strong.” Go the distance, you will be surprised how strong you actually are 🙂
On a side note, I travelled home in a very empty bus and it made me very very happy hehe 🙂
