Many nights have you spent exhausted, on your knees seeking answers from above.  Hours and hours of worry and distress plague your mind and heart.  There is a void in your soul and it is desperate for comfort.  You have put on a smile day in and day out to make sure others don’t see your pain and agony.  You try and try to find out how to cure this seemingly unanswerable burden within.  You don’t even know why this is happening and you don’t seem to get the answers.  You want to give up and let the influences of the world take over.  It’s hard and your head is almost too heavy to hold up, your arms are fallen and your knees are weak.  What are you going to do?  I’ll tell you…let this be hard, let this take it’s course, let your mind and heard find it’s way to overcome this, let God sustain you.

You are infinitely loved and you have the ability to create your future and destiny.  You think it’s hard, that’s because it is but it’s not impossible.  You might not get answers for days, weeks, even years but why give in?  You have too much to lose and an everything to gain, and guess what, God has more riding on your happiness than you ever do.  He sent you here to learn eternal happiness, He will not let that be a unattainable goal.  He has invested everything into you.  Just look around and you’ll find everything you need to make it, even if you only scrap by.  There is nothing that can stop you other than YOU yourself.  Happiness is a choice and a diligent effort is required.  But first you have to make a resolve within to keep on and not give up.  Once you do the enabling power of the Lord will sustain you because you are susceptible and ready to receive it.

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” -Matthew 11:28-30

There is nothing you cannot overcome when you have the grace of Christ in your life, if you don’t feel like you have it, chances are you do but ask for it and surely you’ll get it.   You’ve held on this long don’t let go now.  God has everything you need just wait on Him to provide.  You have an eternities worth within your very soul. That’s the reason you are being attacked, there are forces who want to hinder your progress.  Don’t let them get between you and “a state of never-ending happiness.”  think deeply into your very soul and ask who you are, then ask God who you are and you’ll be surprised in the power you hold within. God will confirm that.  Make the resolve to stick around and not give in!  Trust me!

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” -Isaiah 41:10
