If you got life all put together, you awake to roses and peaches everyday, ready to take on the day … then, sorry, but this post isn’t for you!
I want to talk to those of you who are struggling just to get out of bed. The fact that the sun is shining and you are alive, simply is not enough for you anymore. We have all been there, and if anyone says they haven’t: THEY ARE LYING, or a newborn. Guaranteed, if you are among the living, you will stumble and struggle from time to time. But take comfort in the fact that each struggle gives you new strength, and, you know, you can’t grow without going through some trials and tribulations.
Listen to me, I need you to decide right now that your life is worth living, and even enjoying. Yeah, you got bills due, some may even be cut off today or tomorrow. But you’re still breathing, ain’t you? Oh, okay, your table is bare and stomach is growling. Well, if you can hear your stomach then you can see your chest rising and falling, no? Car woes getting you down, too. Again, are you breathing, though?
In case you haven’t gotten my point, yet, here it is simply put: As long as you have breathe in your body, God will provide and pull you through. Don’t you dare give up on Him, don’t you dare give up on yourself! I may not know you, but I do know that He sees a redeeming quality in all of us. Don’t you dare let man discourage you and trick you into thinking your life is done, and you’re going out on a solemn note. No, you’re not!
He who made you was a trailblazer, so why should you be anything less? Keep on Keepin On! Do whatever you have to do to get up out of that bed and face each new day. And add a smile to your wardrobe–c’mon, now, fake it until you make it. They say in customer service that if you answer the phone with a smile the customer on the other end can “hear” it in your voice. Why not use your own smile to encourage yourself?
I believe in YOU! And, if you never hear it again, you just did today! Wherever you are in the world, whatever you are doing (as long as it’s positive, and full of goodwill), I’m pulling for you. “I need you to survive” :). You can do it, if only you’d believe.
KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON!
Peace, Blessings, and Prosperity
