T H E // S T R U G G L E

Hello beautiful people and welcome back to my blog! I don’t know about y’all but this entire year up to this point has been a struggle for me, and I mean an absolute struggle. I do thank God for being faithful and always keeping his promises and with that being said we’re going to dive in today on getting through those struggles.

When I started this blog I knew off the bat that I wanted to make sure I was transparent about things I have gone through and are currently going through. So that means the good, the bad, and the ugly, because that’s life and my life for sure isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. So the past few weeks I’ve been struggling physically, emotionally, and even spiritually. There has been a lot going on with my family, with my last job, with my health, and even with friendships. It felt like if it wasn’t one thing then it was another, and literally I felt that as soon as I got over one situation then one day later BAM another attack. I’m telling you y’all the enemy was and is going ham and has zero intentions on letting up anytime soon. It’s been one attack after the other and often times it was hard to get out of bed, experience any emotion that was hopelessness or sadness, or even maintain my sanity. I haven’t been sleeping well because the spiritual attacks happen mostly at night with my thoughts running wild, and my eating habits were absolute trash because in my head food was the one thing I could control. All of these things had been happening and the one thing that kept me from slipping back into the depression that I had been delivered from was remembering God’s promises. Such as he would never leave me or forsake me (Deuteronomy 31:6) or remembering that when I am weak he is strong ( 2 Corinthians 12:10). All these reminders and promises kept coming to me, next was worship songs started becoming more personal and the Lord used those to minister to me as well. Overall going through all of these things has made me rely on God so much more than I ever had since before I went through my single season. It tested my faith and that honestly was the hardest thing to do overall. To truly let things go and let God handle it and to have faith that he will come through just like he has done so many times before.

I know a lot of us are struggling day to day and even right now and things might look dark and the light at the end is no where in sight. Let me encourage you today and let you know that we serve a mighty God. One who loves us so so much and will never  leave us. A God who has made us for a magnificent purpose while we rest on this earth and will not let us go through our trials and tribulations alone. A God who is our constant strength in our time of weakness. Whatever you’re struggling with today or have been struggling with for the past few days, months, or even years, just give it to God today. God is bigger than what you’re going through and he desperately wants to take the burdens off of you and take care of them, you just have to let him. It’s scary, believe me I know, but it’s also a must to do so as well. So whatever you’re struggling with today I urge you to give it God.

Lets Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Lord we thank You for just being You. Thank you for never leaving us or forsaking us. Lord we thank You for protecting us even in times when we felt like we were getting hit hardest. We thank You for your grace and mercy that we certainly do not deserve. Father we come to You right now to ask that whatever we are struggling with that we release it fully to You. Lord please help us to remember your promises and allow us to submit to You completely. Please continue to protect us and give us hope that this too shall pass. We pray and ask all of these things in Your Son Jesus Name.

Amen.

 

This does wrap up another post and as always Stay Gorgeous and I love You!
