You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it. – Author unknown

Have you ever found yourself facing an uphill battle? The thought of persevering can be overwhelming. Certain seasons of life can relentlessly bring one obstacle after another without an inch of breathing room in between. In these moments, we need to focus less on the obstacles themselves, and more on how we respond to the Lord in those moments.

Sometimes we go through life asking God to open doors for us.  We seek his blessing for the plans we have made without much thought about what his plans for us might be.  This can bring such frustration and confusion when our plans fall apart even to the point of being angry with those around us and even at the Lord himself.

We lose sight of this important fact that sometimes a closed door is the exact thing we need, even if it results in suffering.

Our personal experience with suffering actually equips us for the ministry God is preparing for us to live out.  Even in these moments of our greatest anguish we must trust that his grace is sufficient.  Perhaps we might need a constant reminder of this truth in the hardest season of life.  Know that we are better equipped to speak into the lives of those who face similar adversities as we are reshaped by our experiences.

Never see your situation as hopeless.  The Lord is writing a story in your life for the purpose of offering hope to others.  Also to deepen your relationship with him as we need to ask the Lord to help us to strengthen and endure the challenges you are facing.  He is writing an incredible story for you to share with the world.

And so, Lord where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you. Psalm 39:

Written by Charisse Le Roux

Where do I put my Hope?

Hope, Don’t lose sight, strengthen, persevere
