While reflecting on my life's journey with God up until now, I meditated on some things that I want to share with the hope of encouraging you: DON'T STOP! Keep lifting up the blood-stained banner of Jesus Christ. Submit to Him and uphold the standard of righteousness and holiness that the Most High requires. Don't give up on your family! Don't give up on your spouse! Don't give up on your children! Don't give up on your friends! Don't give up on your dreams! Don't give up on your business! Don't give up on your talents! DON'T GIVE UP!!!
I know it seems like it's not working. I know you keep hitting a wall. I know they won't listen to you. I know they think you're not qualified. I know they don't respect you. I know they think you're not intelligent enough. I KNOW. Nevertheless, STAY WITH GOD! Remain consistent. It may not look like it now but when the shifting takes place, everything not anchored in Christ is going to drift away. Let Him plant you by the rivers of water so that you won't be moved because some of the very ones who added to your fear of instability will need to hold on to the God in YOU. When that time comes, let it be your privilege, having done all, to stand. It may seem that their intentions were evil but God used it for your good. (Genesis 50:20)
