Struggles of Life

Happy Thursday 😃 I think winter has finally settled in Ohio. I’m not a huge fan of it either. I like my sun and warmth!

Struggles. Everyone has them. We are not promised a perfect life once we ask God into our hearts. It’s actually quite the opposite. Some of these struggles are out of our control while others we bring on ourselves.

Even though we are too have these hard moments doesn’t mean we can’t work to overcome them. Something to think about, for 2022 what are some struggles you would like to overcome?

I have quite a few but a big one for me is PTSD from my injury and everything before it. I have to keep reminding myself that I’m not that person anymore. I have grown so much and with that I know how to do things in a way that won’t burn me out. It is just very hard to wrap my brain around that though. I’m struggling to snap out of it. It’s going to take a lot of work and being intentional but I really want to work on being all of who God wants me to be. I know this is a huge hindrance for that. Not only that but it has become a road block with taking care of my family as well. I am fighting depression pretty bad right now.

The more I am in His word and holding on to the scriptures the stronger I will become. I need to fill my mind with the Truth. Surround yourself with amazing God fearing people. Ones that will pour into your life.
