He is in the press.

James 1:12, “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.”

I am not sure about you but when I am asking God for a word and this is what I get my Hallelujah is not the highest in the crowd.

per·se·vere – continue in a course of action even in the face of difficulty or with little or no prospect of success.

It is one thing to experience difficulty, as we all do. It is a whole other thing to continue to press through it even when you see little to no change. Been there done that, in plain it sucks. If this is you this season I want you to remember you are not alone. When you have exhausted all your options, gave all your strength, prayed without ceasing, even fasted for this thing to move and it has not budged keep moving forward. It is not just challenging to press forward on the path but it can be exhausting. Do not give up! God says You WILL receive the crown. You WILL come to see what He has promised. Trust me I know it can be so hard to see things to the end, but I do know that in that press in the stretch is the beautiful place. I know you might not be able to see it now, but if you just hold on I promise you God will make it work for good. I know what your going through might seem unbearable, draining, or even at times pointless. Continue to ask God for strength, courage, and direction. He is faithful! He will never fail you, believe! Hold tight to the truth, when it does seem to heavy to carry you can lay it down. When it does seem to overwhelm you, you can find rest in Him. He has made you for such a times as this. Allow Him to renew you.

Make sure you are not doing this on your own. Isolation is a dangerous place to be. I know it is not easy to be vulnerable. I know you want to be strong for everyone else, you want to have it all together. But use the people God has blessed you with! They are there to encourage you and lift you up. And if you don’t have a close group get in one!! Also do not let this thing this problem keep you from moving forward. That is exactly what the enemy wants to paralyze you, to make you think you cannot receive the fullness of God. Lies!! You can lay ahold every single thing God has for you! Keep going! Keep praying! Keep seeking! I love you and are lifting you up. Please do not hesitate to write me for pray!!
