From The Pit of Despair


So take heart: Though the journey you're on is one of faltering steps, such steps of dependence are links to My Presence.

Today you feel the journey more than usual.

It's a challenge to take the next step—and all too easy to be aware of your neediness.

Sometimes you get discouraged about your ongoing weaknesses.

You know that dependence on Me brings spiritual blessings, yet at times you feel trapped by your limitations.

Only the knowledge that I am with you keeps you out of the pit of despair.

Awareness of your need for Me is what creates a strong connection to My Presence.

My Power flows into you continually: It gives you strength to take the next step, strength to resist discouragement and despairing, strength to know Me in intimate dependence.

Only My Power can enable you to live abundantly in the midst of your limitations.

Your day-to-day perseverance, in dependence on Me, is every bit as supernatural as an outright miracle.

So don't think that your difficulties signify lack of faith or lack of blessing.

They are means to help you stay on the path I have chosen for you.

Because you are My beloved child, I choose to bless you, but I bless you in ways that are unique to your needs and My design for you.

Though the way before you may be steep and rocky, it is nonetheless the path of Life.

It is where you encounter My luminous Presence—radiating Peace that transcends all understanding.

From " Jesus Lives " by Sarah Young

Stay Strong!

"Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights."
HABAKKUK 3:17–19

"To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen."
JUDE 1:24–25

"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." PHILIPPIANS 4:7
