Don't Give Up!!

by - Sunday, July 24, 2016

Hey ladies, or maybe it is an assumption that only women are reading! It has been a while since I have come on here and had a heart to heart with ya, how have you been?

I wanted to encourage you not to give up. I recently did a video on this, which I will leave on the bottom of this page.

This Christian life is not supposed to be easy, if it was everyone would be doing it. It is easier to give up, walk away and backslide. It is a spiritual fight [Ephesians 6:12] and you must understand that. The flesh is against what the spirit wants. We have to be in the mindset of strengthening our spirit constantly. This is done by spending time in Jesus’ sweet presence. I recently learnt that the word shekinah refers to His presence and I have fallen in love with the word.

It is funny how Christianity is fun until we have to sacrifice something that we really want. My personal relationship with Jesus has challenged me to fight, ultimately for love by being obedient. Am I always obedient? No. But here is the thing I want to encourage you with today: when you slip and fall dust yourself off and keep trying. Repent. Go back to His feet and tell Him how you feel. Let Him mould and create in you a clean heart [Psalm 51:10]. Please do not let the enemy use your mistakes as a way to steal from your joy.

Romans 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

This honestly is a lifetime journey of faith. We will never reach a stage where we have made it. You may do all sorts of things that you would not have liked to. You may repeat your mistakes a 100 times. I always say that we never know how we will react in a situation, until we are in it ourselves. That is why when we hear crimes on the news we should not be quick to judge. At the beginning of my walk I faith, I thought I could trust myself in certain situations. Now I realise that the key is to create boundaries to avoid sin. I realise that I am weak, but of course, in Him I am made strong [2 Corinthians 12:9].

It is important to be aware of these truths and continue to encourage one another in fellowship and prayer. I am growing, which I thank God for. But I will not pretend that my walk is anything perfect and will keep it real with you.

Please be encouraged! God loves you so much and has a plan for your life. Do not get caught up in this temporary and crazy world. It is not worth it.
