Have you ever felt like throwing in the towel
and giving up?
Not sure if others read or hear your message?
Not sure, even then, if they have taken the time
to reflect on what was said
or received any spiritual blessing?
Not sure if even God hears you
when you pray for understanding and wisdom?
DO NOT GIVE UP.
Think about the blessing you receive
every time you pray, every time you reflect,
every time you research,
and every time you compose a message.
God hears, God will continue to speak to your heart,
and God will inspire you for His purpose.
You have no idea the effect your message has on others
and upon yourself.
Keep the faith and trust in Him.
You do His will and plant the seed
leaving the harvest entirely to Him.
"Lord help me persist although I want to give up.
Lord help me to keep trying
although I can't see what good it does.
Lord, help me to keep praying
although I'm not sure you hear me.
Lord, help me to keep living
in ways that seek to please You.
Lord, help me to know when to lead
and when to follow.
Lord, help me to know when to speak
and when to remain silent.
Lord, help me to know
when to act and when to wait."
