No Matter What, Keep Starting Over!

3 thoughts on “No Matter What, Keep Starting Over!”

  1. My Dear Longest Road, I had no idea things were so laborious for you, and your body sometimes.

    This is encouragement I needed, today. My struggles are very different from yours, but your endurance inspires me. Your dedication to a full livelihood! If I can be as deliberate I will be able to fulfill all my desires!

    I’ve heard people say that God doesn’t give anyone burdens they cannot shoulder. I’m unsure of the theological truth of the matter, but I can’t imagine many people understand the effort it takes you to shoulder life’s daily tasking. I understand the need deliberation and a successful day taking significant effort. I understand the desire to not talk about it.

    Hearing your story does cause me to appreciate blessings I take for granted in my own. Thank you for sharing

    1. This is what makes sharing worth it!
      Yes, you absolutely can fulfill your desires and ambitions. We can all make progress toward our dreams.
      I also find fault with the claim that God doesn’t allow “more than we can bear”. It isn’t even biblical really. Paul said in one of his letters that they were burdened “beyond their ability.” But what does make the difference in the Christian perspective, is that those truly unbearable burdens are hoisted on the shoulders of Christ in a beautiful divine exchange:
      “ the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit…”‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭61:3‬ ‭
      “He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power.”
      ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:29‬ ‭
      The grace from the power outside of ourselves unites with the inner strength of the determined decision inside of us.
      I love this quotation:
      “As the will of man co-operates with the will of God, it becomes omnipotent.” 💥
      I think that determination toward any Good, strikes a note of harmony in the universe, and the power of the universe bends reality towards it.
      This is the power to pursue every good and noble pursuit.
      I’m so glad that you’ve been challenged and encouraged 💙
