Becoming burned out does not happen overnight but overtime. The causes of drainage can come from investing or pouring so much time and energy into people, jobs, tasks and daily routines that it becomes exhausting. It can also be a manifestation of giving your all; only not to receive any results or appreciation for your efforts. No matter how hard you try to do the right thing, it just seems that evil is always present. So what do you do when you feel like you cannot take anymore? What do you do when it feels like your best isn’t enough? What do you do when it nothing is going the way you plan nor expected? Continue reading
Keep it all together when everything is fallen apart. This is a test of how much courage, strength, growth and wisdom that you have gained along the way. There will be things that will come from all corners and directions that will attack you. (Sometimes out of no where). It is written in Ephesians 6:12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Behind every negative force of energy and attack is something that is spiritual. Even when you have every reason to quit or give up, remain standing. Do not give anyone or anything your power. You are much stronger than you think you are, especially with God’s strength. Don’t fall apart. Keep your mind together, for you are more than a conqueror. Pass the test during the trial. Everything happens for a reason. When it’s all over, you will be standing victorious. The blessings will outweigh the pain, stress, rejection, loneliness, frustration and anger. Always go to your secret place and allow him to guard and protect you. There is greater and more on the way for you! Allow God to be the band that holds you together. Don’t collapse.

Hebrews 4:16 (KJV) says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”.
God can always still use you the way you are. Sometimes we feel that we have to have it all together in order to come to him. We are constantly internally reminded of our shortcomings and weaknesses. We are also reminded on the
excuses reasons of why we cannot be used. The great thing about God is that his love is eternal. There are no conditions nor limitations that is placed on his love. He knew who you were before you formed in your mother’s womb. He already knew your weakness. But his power is made great in weakness. His love is greater than your weakness or any feeling of unworthiness. There is a reason why he chose you to get the tasks done. It’s more amazing when someone has forms of limitations, but still complete the tasks that are necessary. Don’t ignore his voice, hearken unto him. Allow him to work on you as the way you are. You are not alone or in it by yourself. Unworthiness can block you from so many blessings that God has in store. Despite what you may have done or what other have people done to you, does not negate the truth that God stills loves you and has plans for you. Don’t allow any wall of anger or guilt to separate or stand in the way of pursing a relationship with God. He’s bigger than all of your issues. Again, you are the perfect one for him to use. See yourself the way that he sees you.
It is written in Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”.
You are more than enough. There is nothing that you need to change about who you are. Grow to love yourself the way that God does. If you have been beaten down from the words of other people all of your life, then it is easy to feel < instead of >. If people have under estimated you and counted you out, again you are tempted to feel less than. There are some people who did their best in everything they knew, but it still wasn’t enough. Rejection can also take a toll on how you see yourself. It’s important to know that you are more than enough :). No one can place a label on you but God. No one can know your full potential and all that you have to offer but God. Don’t give people no power to determine what or who you are. It’s easier spoken than said however, with God’s power you can do anything! Don’t count yourself out, because God hasn’t. He will prepare a table in front of your enemies. No need to explain or prove anything to anyone. You have a job to do here on this earth before you perish. The higher his expectations are, the higher the level of responsibility and discipline that is required.
It is written in Luke 12:48 For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required:
You are not a burden or any other name that anyone has spoken about you. You are a child of God, and you are more than enough! Be strong and courageous ♥.

Always believe that the best is always yet to come. There will be so many open doors in your journey. Fret not about what hasn’t worked out, for when the time comes, it will all come together. It shall come to full circle. None of your experiences shall go to waste. God is always in the control, which means nothing does not happen without his permission. He is all-knowing. Only he holds the key to the door of your future. No matter how powerful someone’s ranking, authority and title, remember that everything comes from God. He is the door and the manna. That means all opportunities and blessings are from him no matter whom he may use. When you feel that no one will give you a fair chance, please remember that God is the source, so there is no need to be discouraged. All credit and glory shall go to him and no other. No matter what trials you may endure there is better along the way. You are not a failure because you failed in some way (as we all do time to time). Closed doors are just as important as open doors. Come now and rejoice, for this is only the beginning of the great things to come! Be not discouraged, for there are so many people who will be reached through the power of your testimony ♥
Don’t give up on yourself. If you fall, get back up again. Don’t beat yourself up. Just because you fall, does not mean that you are a failure. Continue reading
