“The spirit of a man sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?” (Proverbs 18:14).
This verse says a lot about the power of your mindset. You may be experiencing a really hard time right now and may have come through some of the worst times in your life, but somehow you made it, and you will make it through your current situation.
Your reason for survival during those challenging times may have been your children, or others who depended on you. There may have been times when you wanted to give up, but somehow you found a reason to live. You may have been very sick, broke, or experienced seasons of failure that you could not seem to break loose from.
If you begin to look back on your experiences and wonder how you survived, you should think about your innate strength. Despite your thoughts of giving up, you have a level of strength in you that motivates you to handle your challenges everyday with grace.
You may not want to deal with difficult people and situations because you’re tired or frustrated, but each moment you live is an indication that you will survive.
Don’t give up! Keep moving forward, and you’ll soon have a testimony to share with others who are experiencing the same situations you survived.
