Honestly, patience seems like the hardest thing to do when you are faced with obstacles you can’t control. Our inability to trust God, to our fullest, is what causes us to become depressed while waiting on God to turn things around. Remember, God will. He hasn’t forgot about your struggle. He knows exactly where you are and He is right there seeing if you will give it over, fully. Let God work on it. Let God figure it out. He has the solution and He promised to never leave us alone. He will answer. Just wait and believe that He will, no matter the obstacle!
Even if you caused it, He is so faithful and will help, anyways. Wait. Keep praying and keep believing. He does not disappoint. I know this because He has never let me down. Others can testify to the same.
“But we must hold on to the progress we have already made.”
Philippians 3:16 NLT
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.”
Hebrews 12:1-3 NLT
“Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.”
Romans 5:2-6 NLT
