Don’t Quit!

This time of year, all of the world there are many marathon’s that take place.  Although I’ve never participated in a marathon I always find them to be quite interesting.  Most sporting events, people are in it to compete and win.  With marathons however, there are hundreds, sometimes even thousands of people who participate.  I’m pretty sure that when 95% of the people that sign up for the marathon aren’t signing up to win.  They are probably participating as a personal goal or maybe they may even want to support someone else.  Automatically this lets me know they are in it and plan to finish the race completely.  Sounds good in theory, but when the actual race begins things may play out a little differently.  Some people run it gracefully all the way through, and others have physical ailments that come up to try and hinder them from completing the race (cramps, dehydration, etc.).  I want to talk about those hindrances.  You may not be in an actual marathon race right now, but your life certainly feels like one.  There are moments that go by effortlessly.  All is well, no set backs just smooth sailing.  Then as the season in your life changes, here come those obstacles and stumbling blocks.  They come to stop you in your tracks and cause you to give up.

I’m here today to tell you, don’t quit.  Endurance is essential if you really want to get all that you can out of life.  You have to possess the ability deep down inside to keep running.  If you can’t run, keep walking and if you can’t walk get down and crawl.  Whatever you do, you have to keep moving.  Many times the enemy will send disruption in our life to cause us to stop.  Remember that’s his job (to kill, steal and destroy).  Unfortunately, sometimes his ploys and tactics work because we allow our flesh to take over, instead of allowing our spirit man to rise up on the inside of us.  This is why the Bible tells us that we are to kill our flesh daily.

Are you tired of starting over in life?  Well, stop quitting.  Stop allowing things (people, situations, circumstances) to cause you to lose focus of what God has ahead of you.  When I talk about endurance I always think about when Moses brought the people of Israel out of Egypt.  The place where God was taking them to was between 200 – 400 miles away.  If you do 10 miles a day, which is very possible, they could have been there in 40 days.  Some people say it could have been even quicker than that.  Instead however, the voyage took 40 years.  Here’s why. During their journey they decided to murmur, complain, they even stopped walking and what’s even worse is they continued to look back on what was and what used to be.  Doing so caused them to literally miss what was right ahead of them.  Stop giving your past so much attention.  Leave your past behind you, it’s there for a reason.  Learn from it and keep it moving.

No matter what is going on around you make it up in your mind that you are going to endure to the very end.  You have to get that down in your spirit.  Build yourself up, so when the devil tries to tear you down, that’s all he can do is try.  God has so much in store for you.  He loves you more than you love yourself.  Don’t give up.  Don’t quit.  You got this, cause God got you! #iDeclare #DontQuit


Father God in the name of Jesus, I thank you for giving me the endurance I need to make it.  I decree and declare that I will not allow any plots, plans, or schemes of the enemy to cause me to stop moving forward.  I will not quit.  I will stay focused at all times.  Thank you Jesus for loving me and for teaching me more and more each day about your perfect will for my life.  In Jesus name, Amen.

Scripture Reference:

Matthew 24:13 NLT “But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

James 1:2-4 NLT “ Dear brothers and sisters,when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”

Hebrews 12:1 KJV “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,”

Just One of Those Days


Have you ever just woke up feeling like it was going to be just one of those days.  When you don’t want to do anything but stay in bed.  That is how the day started off for me.  It’s like I had an uneasy feeling in my spirit.  My mind was racing at a hundred miles a minute thinking about everything and nothing all at the same time.  As I got the girls up and got them ready, I prayed.  This gave me some peace, but the lingering feeling didn’t really go away.  To be honest it only got worse once I left the house and started moving around.  Nothing went anything like I thought it would.  I ended up being gone for a lot longer than I expected because my short to-do list turned into a long list of surprises.  By the grace of God, I made it through.  What I’d like to talk about is how do we handle days like these?  Why do we even have them?

Although I am not a fan of days like these, I truly believe that God allows us to go through to draw us closer to Him.  Yes, you may have a set schedule in regards to your prayer life or time that you spend with God.  I do to.  But sometimes we get so caught up in our day-to-day that God wants to break up the regularity. He wants us to pray differently, read our word differently, just overall spend time with Him differently. I know at one point, there was a time in my life where I would spend Tuesday and Thursday morning as my in-depth prayer time and study my bible comprehensively on Monday and Wednesday.  Now, I would throw prayer in every day as well as bible study, but God showed me that He wanted to change things up a bit.  He wanted to modify my regular scheduled programming.  When there is transformation and growth taking place, you cannot continue to do the same old thing the same old way because if you do you will get the same old results.  This can be said for everyday life, not just spiritually.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing expecting different results, hence where the uneasy feeling comes in.  God doesn’t want His children to be crazy.  He is constantly growing and maturing us in Him and in order for that to happen, something’s in our life and in our everyday ‘norms’ are going to have to shift.

As for how we handle when the shift is taking place, first and foremost we have to acknowledge it for what it is.  When you get that feeling on the inside, but you aren’t sure what’s going on you must first acknowledge that something is in fact going on.  Don’t just count it off as being tired or depressed.  No, that is what the enemy would have you to believe.  When those feelings come, talk to God.  Not just because you know it’s the right thing to do, be 100 percent honest with Him and tell Him how you feel.  Be real with God.  If you aren’t real, then there is no way you’re going to be able to make it through.  Eventually the front that you are putting up will be exposed.  Besides,  He already know anyway.  When you express your feelings take a minute, and pause.  Hear what He has to say back to you.  Think about it like this, when you have a conversation with someone you talk and then you listen.  Do the same with God, in your conversation take the time to listen.

It can be tough to experience days like what I’ve mentioned above, but what I want you all to get is that you are not the only one it happens to so try your best to see the bigger picture.  Having just one of those days, could really be a great thing because that is evidence that a shift is taking place.  I don’t know about you, but I say Lord shift me, shape me, mold me and make me into the woman of God that you created me to be.  There’s a reason that God allows things to happen in our life.  Embrace it. Learn from it.  After all, that’s what living life is all about.  #iDeclare #justoneofthosedays

Heavenly Father, thank you for seeing me through just one of those days.  Although it may not be the most pleasant experience when I am going through, help me to see the bigger picture and truly discern what it is that you would have me to do at that moment.  I decree and declare that I will embrace change.  I will learn from it and as transformation is taking forth in my life, it will push me towards my destiny.  In Jesus name, Amen.
