In the latest chapter of my life, I've been going through many situations that make me ask why. A lot. "God why is this happening to me? What am I supposed to learn through these trials?"
Often I have felt like giving up. Throwing my hands up in the air and scream to the sky that I am done! I don't have the endurance to stand such circumstances. But something I have been realizing is, though I may not know what God is doing, and I do not understand the reasons why there are such valleys are in my life, I am still called to press on. I am still called to trust and praise him through the storm.
The devil has 3 purposes. To steal, kill and destroy. The enemy wants me to give up, believe I am not enough, and to be ashamed of what I can or can't do. But Jesus came to give life.
"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28 (NLT)
Therefore I will fix my eyes on him, and praise him. Though the storm threatens to take me down, I will Press On.
