Have you ever felt like you're the only one trying desperately to hold something together? It could be a situation, a family, a household...
My husband and I both come from dysfunctional family settings. While we absolutely love our families (and each other!) sometimes for us family matters arise that are not normal and sometimes not fair. During these times it's important to remember where you stand.
In Hebrews 10:35-36 it says, "So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised."
In Philippians 3:1 it also says, "Whatever happens, my dear brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord. I never get tired of telling you these things, and I do it to safeguard your faith."
And in 2 Thessalonians 3:13 it says "... never get tired of doing good."
So if you are facing any kind of opposition whether it be from a family member, a demanding toddler, in the workplace, or even your own fears and insecurities, remember...
1. Do not throw away your confidence and trust in The Lord
2. Have patient endurance
3. Rejoice in The Lord
4. Never tire of doing good
