As a deep thinker I've come to some realizations you may find interesting and truthful.
We waste too much time with trivial things we believe important; when our souls are parched and weary; struggling or dying inside; maybe drifting from God. Too many times it takes a tragedy or heart-breaking event to turn us back to our first love. Too many times it requires a life-shattering event to awaken our souls and ignite desperation inside us, to motivate us to get our hearts right with God. But it doesn't always have to come to this.
We can CHOOSE the better things in life.
We can CHOOSE putting God first and making him the center of our lives.
God puts things in front of us EVERY DAY and we can accept these invitations to draw close to him; to learn and grow; increase our faith; strengthen our gifts; walk in our calling; help others; gain revelation and wisdom and live in GREATER blessings.
Don't ignore things which may seem small in your eyes; because they may be MIRACULOUS BLESSINGS waiting to be delivered into your hands; from God!
We have to press past any discouragement, pain and insecurity we feel. We have to press past the lies of the devil and criticism of others. We have to press on into the future; press into Christ and press through the darkness to get to the light! Do not be discouraged because someone else doesn't understand you; your dreams or your feelings. Just know that with faith all things are possible and God is for you and not against you.
Do not give up, do not give in and do not quit. If you are down, discouraged, depressed or done; you are still not dead! The enemy wants nothing more than to kick you when you are down. So use whatever fight you have left to get up, stand up and choose to carry on! There IS HOPE! God is your strength, he is your peace and he holds your life in his hands.
Greater things are yet to come!
Anyone can hold your hand; give you advice; talk you through & walk with you. BUT no one can make you surrender every part of your life to God; it's a CHOICE up to you! When you pray for SUPERNATURAL work in your souls; don't expect PERFECTION; but expect PROGRESS! God works in us daily; just open your heart to him!
"Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world." (James 4:8)
