Giving up is such an easy thing to do. Never give in to any situation or circumstances that you may be going through. Some times that is what the enemy wants us to do. The enemy wants to kill, steal and destroy the good things in our lives. The things we work so hard to accomplish and build for ourselves and our future. The enemy doesn’t like us to be happy and doing great for ourselves. He wants us to be miserable, suicidal, confused, bitter, and angry. We as a people cannot let the enemy win. We have to be strong through everything. We have to make sure we stay prayed up asking GOD for strength.
We should never give the enemy what he wants, however; we should do the opposite to make him mad. The enemy does not like it when we do the opposite of what he sets up for us. The enemy uses things and people in our life to get us off track and he expects us to react in an irate way. He wants us to step out of our character and become just like him; evil and destructive. We must always hold on to GODS unchanging hands when times seem to be getting tough. GOD said in his word that this battle is not ours to fight, we have to cast our cares upon him and he will fight that battle for us. All he needs us to do is trust him and believe that he will do just what he says that he is going to do.
Nobody said that it would be easy, but we have to know that GOD didn’t bring us this far to leave us. Every day is not going to be peachy keen, but with GOD guiding our footsteps, everything is going to be alright. We are going to have some sleepless nights and some weary days but no need in complaining because there is a GOD who knows it all.
“NEVER GIVE IN AND NEVER GIVE UP”
There are times in our life where we feel overwhelming with so much emotions, circumstances, problems, negativity and fear. We sometimes get that big question in our heads; “WHAT AM I SUPPOSE TO DO? ” We ask this question of ourselves more than enough times. We are doing all that we can to be and stay strong and it seems like it is never enough. It seems as though things get harder and harder by the day, by the minute, and by the second. This is where we should fall on our knees and ask GOD for his guidance.
GOD gives is toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. He will never bring you to it if he was not going to be there to guide you through it. GOD knows what’s going to happen before it happens, he knows what the reaction is going to be, he knows what the outcome is going to be, but all he ask us to do is trust in him. We have to know that he has everything under control. When we are having family problems, relationship problems, marriage problems, or friendship problems; the same way he chose us to go through those situations, he wants us to chose him to get through those same situations.
We can not continue to let our situations get the best of us and feel as though we are not enough. We can’t keep thinking that the work we do and the efforts we put forth is not enough. We are going to be unappreciated, looked over, ignored, and tuned out. GOD is a man that sits high and looks low and knows all about it.
“DON’T GET TIRED OF DOING THE RIGHT THING!!! “
Often times we as a people tend to put a lot on ourselves. We tend to carry unnecessary baggage that is not healthy for us. We have to always take time in making sure that WE are okay. It is always a good thing to look out and be there for others in their time of need, but who is going to do the same for YOU?? We have to let ourselves know that it’s okay to take time out for yourselves. We are just as in important as the people we put in front of us.
Don’t beat yourself up in taking a backseat on helping and being there for others. Don’t stress yourself out in worrying whether or not someone gets mad at you for choosing YOU. It’s okay to make sure YOU are first. I speak from experience because I would get stressed if I didn’t make sure that someone else didn’t have what they need and I lack. I would get frustrated for making an effort and get overlooked. Thats when I realize I had to do what was best for me. Those persons that I was always there for were nowhere to be found when it was my turn to be in need. So I had to sit myself down and say IT’S OKAY.
You should always be your #1 fan!!
We all know that tomorrow is not promise to us and that we should live for today. Every day is not going to always be a bright sunshiney day, but we don’t have to let the days struggles or problems be the product of our happiness. Each and every-day we all strive to be the best person that we can be. No one wants to dwell in negative thoughts or actions. When we do that we become bitter and miserable. We tend to blame ourselves for the things that we have no control over.
When things seem to get a little tough and overwhelming; we should get in a corner by ourselves and say a small prayer. We should always let ourselves know that we are in control and that nothing of this day is going to control the ways of my being. We always tell ourselves that we want to be happy, but then we end up falling victim to the very things that cause us agony. Don’t let the small things cause a big disruption. Every day is a NEW DAY to start over!!
Life has it’s battles that we all fight each day and as we get older. Many of us have been through many struggles and sometimes we just don’t know what to do. Learning how to take care of your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual appearance has become a great trend in todays society. We have to start off by bringing and maintaining positive energy. Protecting our peace is so important. It keeps us as individuals sane and focused. Not every-day is going to be peachy keen, but we have to wake up and tell ourselves “TODAY IS GOING TO BE A GOOD DAY”.
