Have you have had one of those moments where something you have worked hard for, put so much time and effort into and believed in so badly didn’t work out? Yeah me too. And I’m having one of those moments right now. Tears well up and it takes everything in you not to let them pour down your face. And as much as you try to stay positive you feel like a total failure. And to add to it, all your past failures flood into your mind as if to say “Don’t you see? You can’t do this and you never will”. You want to give into the negative thoughts and give up on what you once believed could be.
But I am here to tell you (and myself) DO NOT GIVE UP. Do not give in to believing those lies. They are lies straight from the pit hell. Wipe those tear stained cheeks, hold your head up high, take a deep breath and take one small step ahead (even if it is the teeniest tiniest step). I know it’s so hard. I’m right there with you. Right now in this very moment, I feel like giving in and giving up; but I won’t. Especially if God has placed a dream on your heart, do not let anyone or anything take that away from you! You may not be there yet, but you will be one day. One day you will see your beautiful dream turn into reality. You will remember all the pain, hard work and failure it took to get there and you will be so so so glad you didn’t stop.
I write this for you, but also for myself. So one day I can look back on this very post when I have achieved my goals and dreams. I will remember the feelings of failure, disappointment, and deep sadness that I felt and I will be so very grateful that I didn’t give into them and that I never gave up. I pray the same for you. If you feel like giving up, don’t. One day you will be so happy and proud of yourself that you didn’t.
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. 2 Corinthians 15:7
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strength and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
