Get Up or Give Up

It’s so easy to live in a small world on cruse control. We see and talk to the same people, the routine of life makes everyday easy.  The moment there is a challenge, it can feel like the world is ending.

Today, I met up with the girls who volunteer with the video department. I lie to myself and say I plan it for them, but every time I leave our meet ups, I am encouraged by hearing their journey. Many of them are new to church, and hearing the battles they faced remind me that whatever I am going through, it too will have a purpose greater than myself.

I am encouraged to keep pressing forward by the transformation and growth I see in them.

When I was a teenager, I knew my purpose was to impact my generation for God. I have always been a small girl with a big dream. Hearing about the fight others faced, helps me see I can’t give up the fight of faith. Just this morning I felt so exhausted a part of me wondered why am I trying so hard? Why not just give up?

Giving up the fight and pulling the covers over my head is the easy thing to do. Getting up and doing something about it, is a lot harder. This morning I cast my worries to Him, I prayed for the people who are in my life, team, and world. We all have battles to face in our life, no matter how put together we think we are, the differences from failure and success is the decision to get up or give up.

The vision God has placed on your heart, when challenges appear, you can overcome them because in our weakness, He is made strong.

  1. Again wonderful post thank you. In my late teens and early twenties I was often faced with challenges and I am still am. However my decision not to give up and know that there is a higher path and something beyond that of my comprehension has made me a little stronger everyday also. I still get times when I feel I cannot do my job and that I am not good enough but if you believe in God I believe he reveals the answers to you when the time is exactly right. It is often said that God works in mysterious ways, trust in him and everything will be fine. Everything we have is because of God and as long as we try our struggles are ultimately in Gods hands. This comforts me greatly and I hope it will you too.
