There comes a time when, although you know true love gives freely without expectations, you’re just exhausted and can’t find the strength to give any more. And you feel like giving up. Throwing in the towel. Bailing out. Moving on.
But then, in the midst of my hopelessness, i hear God speaking through. He reminds me that nothing worth having comes easy. He reminds me that, although i feel weak, I can depend on His strength, although i feel hopeless, I can depend on His Grace, and although I feel anxious at times, I can depend on His peace.
I am reminded to keep my eyes fixed on Him… and all of a sudden, i can keep going. I can keep giving, i can keep trusting and hoping. I learn to lean on Him, rather than on my own understanding or my own emotions.
