Press On Anyway

by | Apr 10, 2022 | Uncategorized

My mom passed away in January. A friend’s dad died the next day. In the last couple of weeks, I met some young ladies who lost their mom the same week we did, found out that a friend died last month, and discovered that a man we knew years ago is in jail for murder. This isn’t TV; this is life.

Lately, I’ve felt as though I’m just going through my days wondering what is going to happen next. There is so much that I can’t control. I am literally at God’s mercy to protect my family and myself, and yet I have to continue to trust Him no matter what happens.

Life is not easy. There are constant disappointments and heartaches. Fear and depression can set in if you let it. But the Church needs to rise above these things. It may be tempting to compare your life with someone else’s and assume they’ve had a life of ease which is why they can smile and sing in the midst of uncertainty. You may be surprised what that person has walked through. Maybe they still are going through hard times, but they continue to draw near to the Lord and receive the strength and comfort that He provides.

I’m writing to myself too, as this has not been a stellar day, but because He lives, I can face tomorrow. I can trust Him because He knows what He’s doing even when I don’t. He will continue to give strength during the times when I don’t think I can go on. And I know that He will do the same for you.

God bless you all. Keep seeking Him and His righteousness, and trust Him to meet all of your needs.
