Strength to Carry On

Have you ever felt like you just couldn't go another day with the circumstances you are in? Have you just felt so overwhelmed and weighted down that you just can't continue on? Some days I just feel like I have so much to do and I don't feel the urge to do any of it. There are days (sometimes weeks) when I just feel like giving up and I wonder if it is really worth all that I'm going through.

I get so upset sometimes with all the homework, errands, chores and other stuff that needs to get done in a day and I don't feel like I can overcome all that needs to get done. Sometimes I push God aside when things get busy since I don't think I'll have time to finish everything else if I take up my time with God. This thought is totally wrong and is not true. When we make time for God in our busy day He will help us get things done and will bless us for spending that time with Him. I have to say, I've never regretted taking time out of my busy day to spend with God. If anything, those are the days when you need it most!

 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

God has reasons for what we are going through and He knows that you can handle them since you are strong and capable. Many times it may seem like God is testing you and giving you too much that you can't handle, but He never gives anyone too much that they can't handle. You may not be able to accomplish it on your own, and you may fail, but when you ask for God's help you will overcome the things that life throws at you and you can fulfill all your tasks when God is helping you.

Galatians 6:9 
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

The easiest thing for me to do on a busy or stressful day is to complain and question what God is doing- instead I should be asking Him to help me through and give me the right attitude so I can overcome it. God has reasoning behind all the things you face and there is purpose for what you are going through right now. If you are feeling like you can't take your job one more day, if you can't do one more assignment for school, if you don't feel like being kind to that person.....whatever it is, God will give you the perseverance to overcome whatever lies on your path when you ask for His help. Things may get hard, but with God all things will be possible if we keep trusting in Him and relying on His strength to get us through.

Matthew 19:26
 With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible

So, don't give up if you feel all is lost and you just can't take it anymore. Keep going and don't give up the fight yet. Finish strong and remember what kept you going this far and why you didn't give up. When you don't have the strength, ask for God's....He will help you through.
