Sometimes When We Are Just At The Edge Of Giving Up‚ We Just Need To Hang On A Little Longer!
One of my new favorite books is “Its Your Time” by Joel Osteen. In the first chapter he tells us about this man who had this painting on his wall.
The painting had this beat up boat on the shore with the ores out of the boat. On the same caption‚ it read the tide always comes back.
Sometimes that is how people feel‚ when they feel like everything they have tried has just left them “marooned‚ on a strange shore.” But just like that caption relates‚ we must believe that help is on the way. If we are willing to keep on with the faith and hope.
And if you have lost hope then “Get your hopes up. Raise your expectations. Your best days are in front of you. This is exactly the moment to put your faith into action and expect God’s blessings.
It’s your time to declare your faith‚ to look for God’s favor‚ and to give control of your life to Him so that you can find fulfillment in His plans for you! It’s Your Time to believe.In It’s Your Time!”
“Whether you are going through a difficult time or looking for ways to increase in God’s favor and soar to new heights of fulfillment‚ this book will provide bold new prayers‚ inspiring stories‚ and practical tools to help you move forward in faith and realize your dreams.
The hopeful messages and warm encouragement in this book will push you to expand your horizons beyond what you thought you were capable of doing so that you might go even further than you’d ever dreamed of going. IT’S YOUR TIME!”
The most difficult part about faith is that its not faith‚ if you have to wait for something to happen before you will believe. Faith is a “belief in things that are not yet evident.”
It starts with your faith in yourself‚ and if you haven’t yet found that‚ then lean on the faith of your mentor. If you do not have a mentor with faith in you‚ borrow me‚ I believe in you!
“Get up each day thinking that this is the day I am going to achieve my dreams; I am a prisoner of hope; As for me and my house we are going to serve the Lord God; The Creator of the universe is in control of my life;
God works in mysterious ways; God has all kinds of ways to make your dreams come to pass; The tide always comes back‚ speaking faith and believing that the desires of your heart are going to materialize into your life!”
