Breathing gets difficult,
resting seems restless.
God, I really need You now.
Breathing gets difficult,
“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit” - Galatians 6:9, The Message
God has put dreams and desires in every person’s heart. We all have goals we want to accomplish and situations we are believing will be turned around. Sometimes it seems to take longer than we thought. Sometimes things don’t work out the way we planned, and it’s easy to lose enthusiasm. Negative thoughts come to us that say, “It’s never going to change.” “You’re never going to get well.” “You’re never going to get out of debt.” If we’re not careful, we’ll get discouraged and end up just settling where we are. Many times, people miss out on God’s best simply because they give up too soon. They don’t realize how close they are to their victory.
Friend, don’t let that be you today! Don’t give up just because things seem hard. You are closer than you think! You’ve invested so much and you never know, just another few more days of believing, another few weeks of doing the right thing, another few months of staying in faith, and you could see that situation turn around. Remember, God is on your side! Keep standing and keep believing because you are closer than you think to fulfilling every desire He’s placed inside of you!

A life to live.
There’s so much more that matters,
Or even precious things to give.
To speak from a place of conviction,
Where values and beliefs run deep.
It’s not about rules or regulations,
But where mercies are reaped.
His word was in my heart,
a burning fire shut up in my bones.
My heart ablaze and set apart,
No, I cannot hold back these groans.
A generation arising,
For this season’s calling.
And yet, my search goes deep.
It’s only ankle steep.
This knowing in my head,
The pounding in my heart.
There’s more to give,
More to receive.
So much more.
When, how, what.
I’ve long began this adventure,
On a hunt for something greater.
A greater filling,
A greater giving.
Far beyond, what I can ever imagine.
I’ve longed for this,
Eyes darting to and fro.
Resisting every blink,
Hesitating every shift.
And I wait.
I wait for more.
But what I never expected came closer than I’d thought.
You came too close.
You, You were waiting.
That in the midst of my insanity,
Searching every hole and gap.
As the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
and do not return to it without
watering the earth and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower
and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
