This article is for people who are going through a complicated season, people who have dreams to achieve but are afraid to get started, people who know they are capable of more, better and everyone reading this.
Many of us have have gone through and are still going through difficult seasons, situations that take all our strength, our energy and sometimes our faith. Situations that make us doubt ourselves and push us to want to give up on everything. There is a reason for your struggle, it will help you grow, it will help you be stronger, wiser, and better. No matter how hard the situations may look like, I can assure you that they are all turning around for your good. Along the way, you are learning new things and new strategies that are preparing you to shine on your next season; and down the road, you will discover a new you, a mature you, a stronger you, a wiser you, a better you. I want to tell you that no matter what situation you are going through, no matter what life throws at you right now, be sure that God will find you exactly where you are and He will not give up on you, He will guide you every step of your way and help you move forward. God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1). During these difficult times, draw your strength from the Lord. Situations may try to shoot you down, but take your struggles to God, send your prayers up. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness (Colossians 2:7). At the end of the battle, you’re an even stronger warrior. There’s a better version of you waiting for you.
I want to talk to you with ambitions, aspirations, you full of projects, full of dreams. There is a reason why you have these projects, dreams and aspirations, the reason is that you are able to achieve them. I dare to believe that God has placed these dreams in you, and they are probably part of your calling, your destiny, so that in the end the Glory be given to God. Apply in your dream school, apply for the job that will make you happy, go back to school, start this business for which you have the abilities, dare to work for your dreams! Do not doubt yourself, your doubts will not do anything good for you, they will distance you from your goals. If God has placed this dream in your heart, He knows that you are capable of it, and He will be with you throughout this journey. You’ll get admitted to that school because God said so, you’ll get approved for that job because God said so, you’ll meet the right people because God sent them, your business will flourish because God decided so. Remember that [You] can do all things through Christ who gives you strength (Philippians 4:13). He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion. There is a better you looking at you, don’t disappoint them.
Finally, there are those who know that they are capable of better, capable of more. Yes, you’re right, you’re capable of so much better, much better than you can imagine. Stand up and walk with confidence that the God that you serve does not deal with incomplete projects. With God, you’ll be able to do exceedingly, abundantly above, all you could ever think you were capable of.
“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.” (2 Thessalonians 3:16)
