What I have learned is that the times of greatest discouragement...despair...or disappointment mean that God is very clearly trying to speak to me...or get my attention.
He has a purpose for us and it is in living and learning through the difficult things that we grow. When we keep our eyes on Him, trusting that there is a reason for the season and trusting Him to love and strengthen us through it, we can do ALL the things ❤
Similarly, the devil also has a purpose, to keep us in despair...depression, anxiety, fear, insecurites...and pull us away from God. I did a study of Joyce Meyer a long time ago, Battlefield of the Mind, and, for the first time, truly understood the lengths the devil will go to to draw us to himself...including emotional battles that take place within us. That had NEVER occurred to me, but makes perfect sense. Once I realized that, when those times come and I feel like I am drowning under my emotions, I come back with a vengeance and fight....the devil will not win!! I keep my eyes on Him....walk through the tightrope that can sometimes be life, and will come out on the other side, more fully aware and one step closer to who HE intends me to be ❤ #overcomer #eyesonHim #dontgiveup #positivityonly #youvegotthis #lightattheendofthetunnel #growth #greatnessinsideyou
