This week I seem to have found it very difficult to find/think of something to write on. My degree, coupled with the pressures of life have made this week very difficult (especially when something or someone is playing on your mind). At times I feel like just screaming at this world and asking it to just STTTTTTTTTTOPPPPP or at least slow down. So I have decided to write today about my daily struggles and how God is helping me. I hope you can relate to them and find peace and comfort knowing you are not alone and it will soon pass….

I am beyond tired– I have a problem waking up EVERY morning (it doesn’t help that I go to bed late EVERY night lol). I feel that like me, any of us feel tired and sometimes are unable to face what the day brings but at such a time comfort can be found in Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” I love this verse because it gives us assurance that if we put our trust in God He will strengthen us.

Sometimes my work makes no sense – Out of all the degrees in the world I have decided to pick one of the hardest (I seem to have a gift for doing that). “Oh I just lurv a challenge” –OH pls…. what was I thinking?! At such times I draw encouragement from James 1:5 (NIV) “if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” This is very encouraging, our God knows all so who better to ask when you don’t know something.

Things are not going according to your plans – I have always been someone who knows exactly what they want and how they want it. Many see this as good but sometimes it leaves no room for God’s desires in my life. I think many of us are too decisive in that we have a plan mapped out and it is very distressing (well for me anyway) when something doesn’t go the way I planned it, which is a problem as things cannot go EXACTLY the way you planned when you leave no room for error. Lately it seems as though nothing is going my way (this started when began to pray for God’s will to be done in my life rather than mine lool). In such times I seek comfort in Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD” and Isaiah 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way”. As a child of God I know He’s got my back so I needn’t worry about the future and what it holds.

Worrying– It seems to be a popular pastime for us lool. I thought I had it under control but I fear that this is not the case lool. I think we all have something that we can potentially worry about because we all have problems, big or small (and if not then you must be dead because problems are a part of life and once they stop, you stop— quoted from my father). In such times we should look to Matthew 6:25-34. This is focused on why we shouldn’t worry about everyday life because God is our father and he knows how to look after us. I recommend you read it.

People in general just stress us out–Human beings in general are just difficult and I think sometimes it would be better for me to be a hermit and live under a rock than to make an effort with difficult people (you laugh but I’m serious :P). However, we must deal with it because Jesus did so countless times e.g. the Pharisees. Also Matthew 5:38-48 tells us that we must not retaliate as it were. ‘How is this comforting?’ I hear you ask …well to be honest the only comfort I gain from it is that I’m pleasing my father in heaven, which is comfort enough for me.

Persecution – Well if you are spreading God’s word regularly (as you should) then you must have experienced this quite a few times. At my university I preach the word regularly and I’ve been told many a times “you’re wasting your time” “I don’t care about God” “I want to go to hell” “Go home” “you’re too radical” “you think you’re better than us”. It can be disheartening at times (particularly the ones that openly admit they want to go to hell…boi that will be a painful replay on judgement day KAI!!) but the bible says we should

“2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1:2-5

So we should just thank God in such situations.

Well I hope that this has encouraged you because writing this has uplifted my spirit and given me strength to face the day (or what’s left of it) :D. Thank you so much for your kind words and support, please continue to do so and spread the word. Also if anyone feels the weight of life upon them and needs prayer (on any matter) please do not hesitate to Facebook message us or email us on or talk to us on Facebook chat.

Have a blessed week

    “This article is excellent, real life, a real testimony. Draw nigh to God. I have found that when I sigh God is always nigh. We’re like children, sometimes I draw & sometimes He draws! In this world of daily turmoil, Jesus is always piecing me together with His peace and I highly recommend Him because when you live your daily life with Jesus, you get the story and He gets the glory.”
