Sometimes regardless how strong your faith is you want to just give up. Honestly I haven’t felt that way for a while, but I should have known it was a matter of time because that’s what I have been struggling with lately. They say the closer you walk with God the more the devil fights you, they weren’t kidding. Sometimes on the journey we can say we want to quit and give up, but that would be giving in to Satan and letting him win.
He knows exactly how to get you where it hurts too, and he won’t quit without a fight. I just flipped to the back of my bible where I had written the qualities of a Proverbs 31 woman down. Even during my devotional time Satan is attacking reminding me I’ll never be that girl. I’ll never have all those qualities.
Satan is right…. I will never have all of those qualities and fail people on a daily basis. It made me sad to see that list.
Then I saw number 7. God is number one in her life. I can honestly say this one I can agree with. Because I do love Jesus and I desperately long to draw closer to Him daily.
Then I see in another area Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Then I’m reminded of the magnet my parents gave me at a huge turning point in my life on courage. I’ve attached an image with that quote.
Sometimes we have to be reminded that we will never be perfect for anyone, and that’s ok.
God loves us right where we are at for who we are. It’s a perfect unconditional love where are joy is found, even on days we are sad.
So as the quote says, tomorrow I’ll try again.
