Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. – Galatians 6:9 NIV
If you’ve ever wanted to give up you’re not alone. I think of the woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5. She was very sick when she found out Jesus was walking by her town. She set out to meet Jesus to receive the healing she heard He was providing for others. However, once she got to Jesus she saw he was surrounded by a crowd of people.
When she saw this crowd she could have turned away. At the time this would have been easier for her. But she didn’t. She did not allow her obstacle to get in the way of reaching her goal. She pushed though, touched the edge of Jesus’ cloak and was instantly healed. I wonder what healing, what success, what freedom awaits us on the other side of our obstacles. If we give up now, we may never know.
The woman with the issue of blood teaches us a valuable lesson: just because obstacles come our way and make us want to give up, doesn’t mean we have to. So if you have a dream or goal and need some motivation to push through, here are 4 ways keep going when you want to give up. Enjoy!
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for the strength to keep going even when I want to quit. Please help me to rely on your strength and not my own. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
Now I want to hear from you Beloved. Please comment and let me know, what area of your life are you trusting God not to give up on? I look forward to chatting more on this!
