No matter how you feel, where you are, what you’re going through. No matter what everyone is saying and speaking, don’t you dare.
Don’t you dare start believing this is all there is. Don’t you dare believe that no one cares. Don’t you dare succumb to the feelings of your dark moments because that’s what they are…MOMENTS. Don’t you dare believe that it won’t get better, your pain won’t lessen, your despair won’t subside. Don’t you dare.
Don’t you dare stop praying. Even if it has been years that you’ve asked and not received, don’t you dare stop. Just one more breath. One more. Just one more. Don’t you dare fall for the lies of the enemy who is so crafty he knows the exact moment you feel like giving up and giving to speak a lie to you.
Remember who you are, Whose you are and where you’ve been. It may not be perfect right now but you are far from where you were. Look back and see. Remember. Don’t you dare stop now. Don’t you dare.
This is a defining moment. Choose to believe. Choose to walk on. Choose to allow The only One who can make a difference do so. Don’t you dare give up. Don’t you dare. He knows your despair, the anguish of your soul. He knows. He knows the deep wounds, the gaping crevices of your heart and He’s busy right now filling them in. He’s working on that ‘beauty from ashes’ thing right now. Don’t doubt it. Don’t doubt Him. Don’t you dare.
