You are growing. Every single day. When you make an effort to respond to God’s promises with your daily life, you are getting stronger in your faith. So there’s no need to keep tearing yourself down when God wants to build you up! I know it may seem like this is an impossible list and that you could never get through the day, exemplifying this kind of lifestyle, but you can! Through Christ this is possible. You’re not supposed to do this alone. God is with you and when you have a relationship with Jesus Christ, this is possible!
Remember this when you feel like you’ve reached a stopping point and you are no longer growing. Maybe you:
1.Thought you had overcome your depression or anxiety, but there’s a lot on your plate right now and you feel like you’re having to deal with it all over again
2.Thought you and your boyfriend were finally moving forward, but he’s back to his old ways
3. Were moving forward at work or in school, but the workload is getting harder and you don’t have the confidence you used to have
Whatever it is, know that God wants to build you up. The mere fact that you’re breathing is a reason to rejoice! It’s a reason to thank God for the life He has given you. Pray and ask Him to pull you through this day, these emotions, or this situation—He is with you and He doesn’t want to see you fail. Look to Him and let Him build you up!
