Every time you wake up in the morning and remember the challenges you are faced with, you would go on your knees to appeal to God to please intervene and you wish things would just change for you in a moment. This has probably continued for years. At times, your cheeks get stained with tears. At other times, you are completely reduced to a stream of self-pity, as you start making sad comparisms between your predicament and your friend’s fortunate lot. I’ve been in your shoes before and I’ve got an inspired message for you!
Have you searched for job for years, yet no sustainable source of livelihood for you. You’ve been married for years, but there no kids yet. The relatives of your husband are already asking you questions. You written that exam two times now and your grades are just too poor.
Many of your age mates are married, but you are still single.. As a lady, you are anxious that ‘age is not on your side’. Is your home aflame with acrimony? Is your marriage on the verge of collapse? Believe me. God is about to turn things around in your favor!
The message is captured in six words: IT WILL BE OVER VERY SOON! It is clearly a message of hope. You must never allow the flames of discouragement consume you and your dreams of greatness.
Remember, the breakfast of champions is challenges. Don’t give in! Don’t give up! Don’t surrender! Robert Knute said, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going. Robert Schuller also said, tough times don’t last but tough people do.
This will be your story. Hold on to God. Engage the power of hope and you will cope. Keep your dreams alive and know it deep down that it will be over very soon. Like my cousin usually says, I love you to the bones!
