• Bessie Barker


Are you going through something big right now? ~ Circumstances that feel like they are literally sweeping you up and tumbling you in a big ocean wave? ~ As you struggle to find your footing and sense of safety, something else unexpectedly beautiful is happening...if you let it. ~ It's all in how you respond, as you tumble. Your reaction to the struggle, literally has the power to deepen or weaken your faith. ~ Decide to give up on God in that moment and your faith shrinks, as a rare opportunity for God-growth is lost. ~ But reach for God as you endure through it, and your faith enlarges exponentially. ~ Now, you're growing your faith AS you endure the struggle: building a layer of protection around you for the bigger storms of life to come. ~ Endurance: the power of enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way. The capacity of something to last or to withstand wear and tear. ~ Don't you want faith like that? The only way you get it is THROUGH struggle. ~ So, as you fight for air, reach for Jesus and ask Him to fill you with His strength. ~ Praise Him in the storm and you'll double-down on your capacity to weather the hurricanes to come: growing your strength and resilience for the long-haul of life challenges. ~ Romans 5:3-4 "Suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope." ~ Don't miss the hidden blessing INSIDE each struggle. God is with you, always, you are not alone. ~
