Do you feel like you’ve been in a winter season? Are you going through some tough times with your finances, your relationships, your health? You’re not alone. I want to tell you today why we have to learn to embrace the struggle. We must praise Jesus even when we don’t want to.
Ever since I quit my full-time job last year to follow what God told me He wanted me to do with my life (just my coaching business), it has been the most AWESOME year but also the HARDEST year of my life. When we are following God’s path, the enemy gets PISSED. He does not want to see us spread god’s word, he doesn’t want us to be happy, overcome struggles, or have breakthroughs. And the closer you get to God, the more you are going to struggle because of the enemy. So we HAVE to embrace the struggle!
Whenever you are struggling with something & it gets particularly intense, it’s a sign that your breakthrough is right around the corner. This happens to me all the time. I even experiences struggles right after a breakthrough; which is where I have been recently. My finances and my self image are my two areas of weakness where I struggle with putting my happiness or identity in those areas. I know that I have to put my identity in God & that’s all that matters. So I am learning to embrace the struggle.
Well, PRAISE God that I have had financial breakthroughs & finally a breakthrough with my weight this year. Then as soon as those breakthroughs happen – BAM – I have more struggles. I get discouraged when the scale doesn’t go down or my income doesn’t increase. And that is the ENEMY right there because he knows that I am about to break all the chains & have freedom. So he is taunting me & doing all he can to hold me back. That is why we have to embrace the struggle.
God has been telling me that I am about to have an EPIC breakthrough & I KNOW this is true because He promises me that & He has given me visions for my future. And it is the same for YOU my friend! God has a HUGE plan for your life & He promises you that it will happen. If you are struggling right now, your breakthrough is right around the corner. Don’t let the enemy hold you back – embrace the struggle!
Don’t forget to always love yourself!
