DON'T GIVE UP.
I was talking with my daughter about coming near to the last few weeks of school. She mentioned that around this time people drop out, or say that they're going to take the next semester off.
This time seems to be the hardest, and it could in my opinion be compared to the last stages of childbirth, or the last mile of a marathon.
The exhaustion and weariness could make you want to throw in the towel.
Life can also make you want to feel this way. You're in something; You know it has a start and end date. The pressure is on, but you are so deflated because you have put your all in, and you feel as though you have nothing left to give. Nothing to keep you going. Nothing to make you see that thing through to the end. mormon items to wear of the prom situation
So you contemplate, giving up, putting it aside, and not finishing.
What would it matter. You can always get back to it.
The devil whispers lies and deceit in your ear, and they sound soothing and enticing. They lull you into believing, it's alright lay it down, let it go, you deserve a break.
WHY WOULD YOU WASTE ALL OF OUR TIME AND EFFORT.
Shake yourself it's always toughest toward the end of a thing. Woman in labor do not want to push. Runners legs wobble and start to give out.
It's too late for an epidural. The water stands aren't at this juncture.
With all that is in you; YOU have to push. YOU have to pick up your legs. YOU have to speak to yourself what God says.
There is nothing like the pain of coulda, woulda, shoulda. Guilt is nasty. Regret is painful.
KEEP GOING. With all that you have put into it, you are not willing to lose. Tell your soul to be quiet, and you are going to obey the unction, and power of the Spirit of the living God who is in you.
You are going to rely on His strength, His wisdom, His power, and His strategy. He would not bring you this far to leave YOU, so YOU don't leave Him.
Refresh yourself in the Lord today. Draw strength from Him. He knows where you are, and how you're feeling. Let Him pump new life into your veins.
Most of all remember "God gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint".
God has delivered your "baby", and He has your "prize" at the finish line.
