Five Minute Friday ~ Long


It's been a long day, it's been a long week, it's been a long year. You feel stressed and tired because of everything that is going on whether you understand it or not. You feel like things aren't going the way they are supposed to and you feel like giving up. You feel like it has come to the end of that long road. 

We have to remember that God is our strength and our song in these times of weakness and in these times where everything seems to be long. The joy of the Lord is your strength and it will continue to be your strength. His strength is made perfect in our weakness. 

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV)

In those times where you don't have the strength to continue, remember that God is with you and He will sustain you. His strength is all that we need, His strength is the thing that will keep us. 

Keep holding on, keep striving because your best is yet to come.
