the fire inside you
Sometimes we need a reminder. Sometimes what we're going through can consume us if we aren't careful. Sometimes it seems that things are so beyond our control and we're not sure how we're going to make it. We feel like no matter what we do or how hard we try, it's not enough. Sometimes our hope gets dim. That's when we need to take a deep breath and take a step back and remember that we're not alone. We were never meant to carry the world on our shoulders or walk through tough times by ourselves. We were made for more. And we will get through this. And if we take our eyes off the fire, we can see the blessings that surround us, even when we can't stand the heat of what we're going through. There is a Fire within that is so much greater than anything we face. By greater, I mean better, but also bigger. Our God is greater, stronger, mightier than any fire we may encounter. And He will get us through it.
"When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burnt; the hard trials that come will not hurt you." Isaiah 43:2 Good News Bible
Keep going. Stand firm. And please, don't lose hope. Dig deep and let that Fire inside give you the strength and courage to persevere. This too shall pass.
