Journal Entry #25: Press On

Abba...I want to sleep with hopes that everything will be okay. From this day forward, I ask for the courage and strength to press on.                                                                                              5/10/2011

If I could speak to my twenty-two-year-old self, I would say:

Do not be surprised because trials and troubles of any kind will come into your life, but you must choose to press on.  Do not give up instead seek God. Seek Him in your confusion, frustrations, doubts, and fears. Remember that God can handle all your worries and questions. Ask for God's perspective and lean not on your own understanding. Choose to take it one day at a time, stay close to Him and be honest about your pain. Getting through a season in which you experience pain or suffering is a process, not always an instant deliverance. Learn all that God wants to teach you in the seasons God will allow you to go through. You might not understand or receive an answer to "why" you're going through this pain or trial but trust God. Trust in Him as God, not as a human. Remember that God is trustworthy, His thoughts of you are precious, and He wants to give you a future and hope. He is the God who is with you, so there is no need to be discouraged, He will help you and strengthen you.  He is the God who will sustain you in any season of life.
