so I am back to write about struggle. I know what most are thinking what struggles can a 22 year old have? Well I’ll start by saying to you all that yes the older individuals had issues with racism, the great depression, and wars. Well hate to break it to you all who want to act as if life has changed so much, but we too face the same struggles and more. At 16 I was overcoming addiction that adults would be coming over in there 30’s. At 20 I was overcoming abuse that almost cost me my life. Now at age 22 I struggle with bills, a child, and trying to discover my purpose. SO please watch what you place your mouth on. Because while I am an unwed mother I overcame abuse that brought my child into existence. While I don’t have a job I am in school and have applied for 100’s of jobs. I have had everything taken, almost had to live on a street, in a home infested with mice, and so much more. But God never gave up on me and I am here today and can say thank you God for taking me out. Why I may not have what you think I should have I am just humbled enough to still be able to take a breath. So you all may not agree but the tears that were shed by me and for me with many prayers and sleepless nights is why I am here.
Which leads me to this beautiful blog. Tears for tomorrow is a blog set with hope. No matter the struggles we can ALL make it. Just because the picture is not perfect does not mean we don’t have purpose. Many of us will have a moment in our life where we will cry tears because everything that can and will go wrong happens. Where we are just in search of something to keep us from doing something drastic. I know I was there, and it is by the grace of God I haven’t gone back. Times where living for the world and selfish pursuits seem to be better then having Faith and fighting the Good fight. When we question if following the commandments and loving our enemy’s are even worth it. Where it seems as our prayers are empty and falling upon deaf ears. God knew that we all would have a moment like this, and this is what He had to say,
“Fear not, for I am with you;be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous hand.”
“For I consider the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing to the glory that will be revealed to us.”
“And we know for all those that love God all things work together for good, for those according to His purpose.”
2 Corinthians 4:17
“For our light and momentary afflictions are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
“For His anger lasts for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.”
So as these scriptures give you hope; understand we are not alone. Trials and tests will come,but know we have Christ to help carry the burden and it’s okay to cry. Draw strength from those tears and hold on to that hope for tomorrow. Be patient and trust in Him and allow Him to direct your paths. For we serve a merciful God and His grace and blessings will be worth the uncomfortable circumstance. Don’t stay in that place. Press forward and trust that God’s plan is worth the struggle for a brighter future. You are not alone. God loves you.
