Well it’s Monday again, and many of us have the Monday blues. That’s a common statement to be made by almost everyone that you know. For some of us it may go a little deeper than just your ordinary Monday blues. Some may be experiencing¬†a dark season in your life right now, so everyday feels like the Monday blues. Well if that is you, let me encourage your heart on today. I know you may feel like you’re in a lonely place, or maybe you feel forgotten. I want you to know that you are not alone, and that there are more for you than be against you. You are loved, you are valued, and you mean so much to the people you were put on this earth to effect. Yes, YOU have a purpose so far beyond anything you can ever imagine or think. Your life has so much purpose in it. God could have chosen anyone to be in your position on this planet, but he chose you; he wants you! Although you may feel like giving up, you may feel like you would be better off dead, or that your life is meaningless,but God has a purpose for you. That’s why the enemy is fighting you so hard to give up, but I say to you on today DO NOT GIVE UP YOU ARE A WINNER!! Whatever it takes you have to keep going, and don’t let the enemy claim you as his defeated foe. I don’t care how horrible your situation may seem it wont always be like this. You will laugh again, you will have peace again, you will walk in the fullness of joy again, you will be at your best again, and most importantly you will be on top again. Everybody has to go through their storms in life, and yes our faith will forever be tested, but how you weather the storm determines your victory. I say unto you don’t be discouraged, hold your head up, and begin to stand strong in your faith. God has your back and he will not let you drown if you will simply trust him. I know first hand it is so much easier said than done. Take it one day at a time, and please say this scripture out loud everyday until it hits your heart, and you gain strength from it: (Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Let this word take root in your heart! Agape!
