He is with you Mandisa, right now, right here. Do not quit, you've got the King of Kings at your side, the Lord of Lords, He will never fail you, no matter what you experience....even in the most dire of circumstances. I don't have any knowledge of what your circumstances may be, but I do know one thing, He is with you.
I am sending prayers up for you Mandisa. Hang on tight, sometimes its a white knuckled ride, but you will prevail no matter what. The chief end of man is to Glorify the LORD. Cling to Him and you will sail along on the rocky seas with faith. This is the time that your faith will go to work, even at the end of the day, no matter what happens.
Stand Your Truth my sweet sister...
I'm happy to hear that you are doing well. Praise God!
When I saw your post, the verse that popped into my head was psalm 46:10.
We do tend to 'strive' in our own strength... Well, I do anyway. It gives me peace that all my striving is self-induced. God never asks that of me. He simply asks us to cast our cares on Him because He cares for us, and He tells us that His burden is light.
In Isaiah 41:10 He tells us 'Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'
We're here to glorify Him, and live for Him. Even though we constantly fall short, He still wants to include us in His work for His purposes. He wants all people to come to the understanding of who He is. Our Creator, Exemplar and Redeemer. We all lose hope at some time or another. Praise God that He has given us the Holy Spirit...He will never leave us or forsake us.
We do Praise Him!
