Maybe you’re right at the edge of breakthrough. Maybe you’re right at the edge of seeing the change you’ve prayed for and sought the Lord for. Wherever you are, trust that His plans for you are good. They are.

I took a break from writing last month, but I didn’t take a break from my conversations with God. One morning I found myself pondering so many questions about my life and the words the Lord gave me were “ye have need of patience.” With those words, I searched to find the corresponding verse I knew they were connected to.

To make sure I embedded them in my heart I grabbed my dry erase marker and wrote the scripture on my bathroom mirror. Every day since then, I wake up to those words staring me in the face. 

36 For you have need of patient endurance [to bear up under difficult circumstances without compromising], so that when you have carried out the will of God, you may receive and enjoy to the full what is promised.

Hebrews 10:36 AMP

That same morning, the scripture of the day in the Bible App also spoke to my heart.  Here’s what it said.

57 but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory [as conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

58 Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord [always doing your best and doing more than is needed], being continually aware that your labor [even to the point of exhaustion] in the Lord is not futile nor wasted [it is never without purpose].

I Corinthians 15:57-58 AMP

I thought I’d throw you a lifeline today in case you’re needing a bit of hope like I do. And even if it seems like things are at the edge of falling apart, my prayer is that you (we) are found patiently waiting for the promises of God as we continue walking in victory through Jesus! This walk, no matter how challenging or exhausting, is NEVER without purpose.

Love you all so much and I am praying you see how beautiful your stories will end along with how they will begin!
