We all have battles in life that we go through… Sometimes, they are silent battles, ones that no one else knows about… sometimes they are very public battles and it feels like the whole world knows what you are being faced with. Either way I think we can agree that battles are hard. And no one is immune to them. Some battles you feel ready for, some you do not. And then there are the continuous battles… one right after another and there seems to be no end. Those battles are the most challenging mentally.
If you are like me during those rough times, you feel like you are constantly throwing your shield up against arrows of disappointment, discouragement, and regret and you have those moments where you just feel tired. Tired of fighting, tired of lifting that shield… and BAM… that’s when an overwhelming sense of exhaustion and a feeling of giving up comes over you. You are right in the thick of it and you fall to your knees feeling alone and overwhelmed. All you want to do is ‘sit this one out’. Those nasty thoughts come creeping through… you know the ones I’m talking about… I’m sure we’ve all faced them at some point or another…
What’s the point of it all anyways?
What am I fighting for?
What is my measly life good for?
Wouldn’t everyone be better off with out me?
That’s when you need to YELL back to yourself…
You need to know that no one is better off without you! It’s the exact opposite. Everyone is better off with you! ❤ You are the only You! Picture a big beautiful puzzle with a missing piece. You cannot see the whole beautiful picture the way it was designed to be seen because of that one pesky missing piece.
You may think it’s only one missing piece but that one piece effects the whole picture. That’s you in the great puzzle of life. You are a piece in this puzzle of life that only you fit. Without you there will always be something important missing. You have a part to play in the lives of those around you that no one else can play! Fight On, Fighter!
DON’T GIVE UP!
You are not alone in this battle. Your Creator is by your side. Even if you FEEL like you are alone please KNOW within your spirit that you are not!
God has given you everything you need to win this war. The battle has already been won but you still need to fight. So stand up, dust off your knees, raise your shield and your sword. Fight On, Fighter.
IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT YOU!
Remember who is coming behind you… your children, your spouse, your parents, your friends… we are all fighting for someone! Use that as your motivation! Who are you fighting for?
It’s your life, but it’s not all about you… and that ultimately is what makes this battle… and every battle after that… worth fighting! With God, you can do it! Fight On, Fighter. ❤
Thank-you for hearing my right-sided heart on the matter…
