October 26, 2017 – Thursday Motivation: Hang In There & Don’t Give Up!
By Freda Lade Ajumobi
One question I find people asking a lot of is wanting to know why they are here on earth and what their purpose is in this life. I wonder if this might be the same question you are asking right now? Why am I here, where am I going, and what is my purpose and destination in life? First of all, I would like to encourage you that you are not alone. A million and one people are also asking the same question right now.
Perhaps you need some prayer at this time and you don’t have anyone to turn to. Perhaps you are feeling low and you are thinking the best way out is to end it all.
God Is Thinking Of You
At this moment, I would like you to know that God is thinking about you and is concerned about you. That is the reason why you are reading this blog right now. He is saying to you, “My son, my daughter, you may not know me or have any relationship with me, but I know you and I want to have a relationship with you. You are the work of my hands. I love you and I care about you.
Will you give me a chance and let me in? I created you and I have been waiting all these years for you to turn to me. Like the prodigal son who left his father, his family and home and took all his possessions to go and live another life somewhere else, but soon discovered that what he thought would be a good life ended up badly. Throughout this time, his father waited patiently in hope and in the knowledge that one day his son would come back home. His arms of love remained open towards his prodigal son waiting for that wonderful day. The father did not give up on his son because he loved him dearly.
The prodigal son had his own will and went his own way. After a while, he became broke, homeless and penniless. He was hungry and ended up eating the food of pigs and therefore decided to go back home to his father. When he went back home, his father welcomed him with open arms and celebrated and rejoiced over him.”
Will you come back home?
“In the same manner, I am asking you, will you come back home? Come back to Me your Heavenly Father, I am waiting to help you and strengthen you in your weakness. I want to walk and talk with you. I don’t want you to give up on life, I don’t want you to commit suicide or feel isolated. I want you to live and fulfil destiny. I want you to know that you are not alone and I do not wish you any evil. My thoughts towards you are of good and not of evil to bring you to an expected end.”
Take courage, hang in there, don’t give up
Dear reader and fellow sojourner, this is what I feel that God is saying to you and I would like to support you in prayer today. I want you to take courage and be strong, take courage and hang in there, take courage and don’t give up hope. You are not an error; you were created for a purpose. You are not a mistake; there is a reason why you are here. You are not a failure; this is just another season of your life that will soon pass. The storm may be raging right now and you might feel like a lonely sailor in the open sea of life with no one to come to your rescue. Deep in your heart you may not really want to give up, but the raging storm is persistent and the wind of turbulence is so strong that you feel like letting go. I pray that you will not give up now, you’ve come too far. I pray that God will strengthen you and uphold you with His righteous right hand.
My prayer for you
My prayer for you today is that you will hang in there and not give up. I pray that the Almighty God will shine a ray of hope towards you and reach out to you as you cry to Him for help. I pray the Angels of the Most High God will come to your aid and assist you in whatever you might be struggling with. I pray that God will come to your aid and send his Angels to help you in your home and give you peace. I pray that the Spirit of God will deliver you from all of your afflictions, physically, mentally and emotionally. I pray that where there is turbulence in your life that the Almighty God will send His peace your way. I pray that the peace of God that passes all understanding will guide and guard your heart in Christ Jesus. I pray that your feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness will be driven away by the Holy Spirit and that you will be strengthened in your inner man so that you are able to face tomorrow. I pray that you will learn to take one day at a time and let today take care of itself. Today will pass away, tomorrow is another day. I pray that if you have lost your job, your family or going through adversity, that Almighty God will open new doors of opportunity for you. I pray that your faith will not fail and that you will open your heart to God so that He can heal you. I pray that God will bring genuine friends and people your way. People who are caring, loving and will be supportive towards you at home, at work and everywhere you go.
Finally, may you be like a tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. May whatever you do prosper. May your family prosper, may you prosper in your job and may all that you lay your hands on turn out for good.
Remember, this is another season in your life. It will soon pass. Hang in there, don’t give up, this too shall pass.
