I said this to one of my client’s the other day, and she said that it really helped her keep moving, despite all the difficulties that had occurred throughout her week. This sort of thing is really easy to say, and really easy to say to someone else; but when met with the task of keeping on, I found it much harder to actually do than say.
Strangely enough, I felt a sense of unease…a level of stress that comes along, every now and then. However, I was met with a revelation. I could continue to wallow in self pity, and stay where I was, or keep moving forward, and try to find solutions to the problems at hand. And make no mistake about it…solutions to these problems are often not easy to find, and sometimes the solutions you find are not the ones you were hoping for. As a result, this can further add to an already frustrating circumstance.
Despite all this, you can’t lose sight of faith and hope. If you don’t have either of these things, then guess what? Your life will likely stay…hopeless and faithless. Sounds awfully difficult, doesn’t it? The alternative? Keep digging. Eventually, the solution you’re looking for could be closer than you think. It may take you a few tries, and I’ll even admit that there are a few problems that I have yet to find the solutions for. But know this…I will keep trying to find what I need, because I have the faith the grain of a mustard seed that God will help me find the answers I’m looking for. It doesn’t sounds like a whole lot of faith, but the funny thing is…far as I know…
…that’s all I need.
