Good Morning future wives and husbands. I want to do a love affirmation for you all this early morning. My love affirmation is for my future wives and husbands not to give up! We tend to take our eyes off what God has for us because what we prayed for is not happening as fast as we would like it to.
I will be the first to say that I have had my time of feeling down. I see my friends all getting engaged and married and I feel like I am getting passed up. It do make me wonder when will my time come? I am celibate and I have taken time to do the self work. So now I am ready for that family I prayed about! Career, I am ready to have more financially. I am ready to see the fruits of my hard work! So when will I get the blessings others are getting?
God is telling us to HOLD ON! We have to step back and let God take control and lead us in the right direction! Right when I start to go on and do it my way is when God reminds me of the outcome of going ahead of His timing! I worked so hard to stay on the straight and narrow. Not that I would turn into drugs or alcohol because those were never my vices. I turn to men for love and affection. To make me forget my problems. That in turn got me nothing more than feeling more lonely and empty.
I do not want to go back into the arms of someone who do not care about me. I know when I am feeling this way, it is nothing more than the enemy trying to get me off my course. It is up to each and everyone of us not to GIVE UP! I have put together my top 3 scriptures I read when I am feeling like I want to give up.
2 Chronicles 15:7 (NIV)
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)
(I gave my son his middle name Isaiah off this very verse!)
Do not fear, For I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God, I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
Let us not be weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up
God is good! I love going to these bible verse when I feel my spirit need a pick me up. We must remember why we left the old ways behind. The past did not look brighter than our future. When it seem like we are getting passed up, do not forget that God is working things out so that we can have all that we asked. So stay on course and everything will come together just as you prayed. The key is not to give up!!!
