Everything we do, everything we say, who we are... should reflect HIM!!!
This has been my thoughts lately and my prayer! In this life, we see many good things happen in our lives, and we all have those struggles and trials that we go through! It isn't always easy. But something I learned is that no matter what happens in our lives, it will never change God and who He is! He will always be our loving savior! He will always be our gracious king! God doesn't change! He is always faithful! He is always there! And though we go through some hard things, we need to keep in faith and keep trusting the one who knows better than we do, who sees farther than today, and who will always want good for us no matter how much we mess up! I have learned that no matter what happens in this life, there is more to this life than what we see! God is there, and when we stay faithful to Him and trust Him through all the hard times, we will see victory and breakthrough come, even when it looked so far off! Keep on trusting, keep remembering that there is more to this life than what we see with our eyes. Everything we do, everything we say, who we are through the good and the bad, should always reflect God and His love, and His faithfulness, and His forgiveness,....etc!  Stay close to HIM!!!

never ever ever give up!

My advice to you today is this: Never allow your self to give up, not in any area of your life.... When you allow your self to give up or quit in an area of your life, it gives satan a foothold to try and pry his way in and convince you that giving up is ok! you will find a new thing, you will find a new job, you will find a new ... whatever! I want to tell you that it is when we PUSH THROUGH the hard times and when we don't allow ourselves to give up when it gets hard that the victory is even more amazing than what you could have even dreamed!
I have to say in sadness, that I was there. I was at the point of giving up in a few different areas, and it is such a defeated feeling. It is a feeling that I never want to feel again. It is not a feeling of trust or faith in God, but a feeling of fear! A feeling of wanting to run and just ignore what is really going on and actually trying to push through whatever hard time that has come. It is a fear driven response that satan tries to bring us down! But there is hope! There is a savior who wants to help you through the hard. There is a loving God who wants you to know that you will get through and that it will be a victory that you will remember forever! Giving up is not an option, and I have learned that I never want to give up because it can be a snowball effect! Follow hard after God! Trust Him and His will for your life! and Trust that God wont let you down, and wont drop you when it seems like you are in midair! He's got you!
