Someone Needs You to Keep Going

June 29, 2018

When you feel like giving up, don't...someone needs you to keep going.  No, I'm not referring to those you love and who love you.  I'm not referring to those you see on a regular basis.  Granted, all of these people need to see you struggle and win.  But I'm referring to someone you will cross paths with one day who will be going through the same storm you are enduring right now.


Not all of our scars are meant to be covered up and hidden.  Someone is gonna need to see them one day.  They will need to see that you made it; they will need to see how you healed after being hurt.  They will need to hear your story.  So don't give up fighting.  Don't quit in the middle of the storm.  


We have all been through different situations and endured different things, some worse than others.  What I have endured over the years has taught me a lot and has helped me to encourage others.  Compassion rarely comes from a painless past.  It comes from the Lord, and I believe in my case that He used the pain of my past to give me compassion and love I would not have had.  


Strength isn't developed in a bubble with no outside struggle.  So don't give up pushing.  Don't stop fighting.  I urge you to keep going no matter how hard the struggle is.  Someone's gonna need to hear about it one day.


Father, please give us courage to endure and not stop.  Please strengthen us to keep going and keep fighting.  Help us to remember that the comfort You give us in these times will enable us to comfort someone else.  In Jesus' Name.  Amen.



2 Corinthians 1:3-7
