Darkness, it is not the absence of light but the conviction that light will never return!
The truth is that we fight everyday for what we believe in, for what we desire even for what we want/need. It just does not come easy or on a platter of gold. And sometimes we lose people; family, friends, allies.... We lose memories, joyful moments, irreplaceable treasures and sometimes we even lose ourselves in the process, which sets us off course
We try to stay on, keep pushing and striving. Some days are encouraging, some days are good, some days are Manageable and some days are unbearable.
A wise man once said To keep going, you must always remember why you started! He is right but I do not think that is enough. It is just a piece in the puzzle.
Be determined, be zealous, apply Gods word, stay motivated, surround yourself with people that push you forward - these are the stuffs you need but again, they are not enough! That is right... They are not!
They all need one ingredient to function!
No matter how much of Gods word you apply, you do not use it after the whistle goes off for full time.
No matter how zealous or how many encouraging people surround you, you do not use them to fight Bron Strowman
You know why? Because in your head, heart and mind, it is not possible!
That is why the good book says You must first believe that He (God) is who He says He is and that it is possible for Him to do what He says!
So the question is.... That thing you want to hold on to, that business, that marriage, that education, that relationship, that contract.... Do you believe that it is still possible?
Is it possible?
Is it possible??
Is it possible???
Because it must first be possible to you before any measure can work for you....
So is it still possible for you to have a first class?
Is it still possible for you to get a job?
Whatever it is you are longing for... You must be able to confidently say It is possible! before you can take any step towards hanging on!
And that, my friend is called HOPE!
