First and foremost, I want to apologize to all my loyal readers for my absence. I haven’t written in months. The main reason for this is because I really didn’t have anything to say. I never want to write just to be writing. I want to write with purpose. I’ve also recently started a new job and I’ve been dealing with the adjustment of that as well as a few other things. With all that being said, we will get into the message for tonight.
I believe it was Winston Churchill that once said, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” This quote came to my mind the other night as I was sitting in the emergency room with my son. He had a reaction to a tick bite. As I mentioned previously, I just started a new job. Although this new job, it seems a lot of the problems I previously had, remained. Although I liked certain things about this job, it’s plenty of things I don’t like either. As I sat in the emergency room that night worried and knowing I’d have to miss some time from my new job, this quote came to my mind. Being that I didn’t like the job as much as I expected, it made me want to run back to the normal, run back to the old things I knew and I was comfortable with, but I knew deep in my heart, God was trying to lead me somewhere and me going back wasn’t going to help me get through this process any faster.
Then this Saturday me and my son were hanging out at the mall, and as we were walking to the car, it started pouring out of nowhere. We got caught in this bad storm with a heavy down pour. Part of me wanted to stop and just wait for the storm pass over but then I didn’t know how long that would take. Then God said to me, “Just keep going, you will get through the storm faster if you just keep going.” As I kept going, in no time the sky cleared up, it was sunny and no trace of rain could even be seen on the pavement. Had I pulled over or just sat there waiting on the rain to stop, who knows how long I would have been waiting. After I got further down the road, I knew I made the best choice when I decided to just keep going.
I say all this to say, no matter where you are in life right now, just keep going! If you are in a hard situation or a awkward situation, keep going and just see what God has up ahead for you. One thing about hard times, they don’t last always. As for me, being that I’m also in an awkward place right now, I’m gonna do just what I’ve told you to do, keep going! That’s all I really can’t do. When you don’t want to go back but you don’t like where you are, you know that place you will love will be up ahead. Just know that place, that thing, that job, that person you want exists and don’t give up until you get it!
