All you can do

All you can do is your best even if you’re not getting anywhere.

All you can do

We work so hard in life and sometimes it feels like we’re getting nowhere, doesn’t it? All you can do is your best and pray that God will take care of the rest.

I believe that when you truly try to work hard at everything you do, no day is wasted. For example, you work hard at your job but see no results, you work hard with your children and they’re still acting up. It’s still not wasted energy because you are trying the best you know how to do, even though you can learn how to get better in that field, you’re doing your best, and that’s all God asks of you. You are storing up things in the kingdom of Heaven when you’re doing all He has called you to do.

All you can do

The only time you have wasted a day away is if you stop trying altogether and don’t spend time with Him in prayer and in His Word. It’s through Him is how you get energized and be everything that He has called you to be in your life.

There have been so many times in life where I’ve just felt like giving up. I’m sure we’ve all been there done that. There was a time when I almost gave up on my blogs. But you know what held me together? God! I decided to take a few days off from blogging and focus on Him for a bit, and on other things. Do you know what I found by doing that? I found that sometimes instead of quitting altogether, you just need a break.

However, there are certain things that you can’t have a break from are there? Such as being a wife, a mother, a co-worker. What do you do then?

All you can do

  1. Find a Bible verse that makes you feel like “Yes, I can do this!” Tell yourself you have the strength of Jesus.
  2. Anytime something isn’t going your way, or feeling frustrated etc, run to Him. Tell God what your feeling, ask Him to take this cup from you.
  3. Play a positive song to help you get through your day.
  4. Plan some self-care in your day. Such as a bath, or relaxing with a good novel.
  5. Do something that really makes you use your mind. To forget your issues for a bit.
  6. Talk to a trust friend or pastor and let them help you come up with another solution or pray with you.
  7. Close your eyes and picture Jesus right there going through it with you.

Life can be tough, but please remember that Jesus has overcome the world, and what you’re going through is only for a season. Yes, I’m talking to myself as well! You know what? For us believers, it’s ALL worth it, because we know how it ends. It starts and ends in Jesus winning! Everything we go through is to build and strengthen our character. On top of that our suffering, heartache, and disappoints, I believe is for Jesus. How would we know how Jesus felt on the cross if we hadn’t gone through it ourselves? I’m speaking from faith right now since my stomach is hurting as I’m typing this, and I believe every time I hurt, it’s not for nothing, I hurt for Jesus. I hurt because of Jesus. He may not have caused my stomach to hurt, but since I’m a child of God it’s part of the sufferings.

Please know that things just happen in life. It’s nobody’s fault. It’s part of being part of this world. If we got too comfortable in it, we wouldn’t look forward to Heaven, would we? Pray about it and wait in silence to see if God has you do anything differently or less than what you’re doing now. He’ll speak when you let Him. Then don’t forget He’ll act according to your faith. But even if He doesn’t answer in the way you asked Him to, the key is never to give up and ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST and let God do the rest! Your hard work never goes unseen by your creator. 

John 16:33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
