March 10 - Just Keep Going


I wish I could sit here and tell you that I'm full of endless energy, that I don't get tired, and that I don't get stressed. But that would be a lie. I get very tired, I get extremely stressed, and sometimes I feel so lost that I don't even know how to begin my day.

When I start to feel overwhelmed, I have a choice:

A.) Relax, take a break, or give up

B.) Keep going

Any runner will tell you the secret to going a long distance: just keep going. Am I over-simplifying it? Actually, no. Backing away from difficulty only causes one thing: regret. 

Everything good comes from God, including the strength to carry on.

But HOW do I keep going? I pray for strength and wisdom. Everything good comes from God, including the strength to carry on.

"Heavenly Father, thank you for these trials. Thank you for this difficult season in my life. You continue to make me stronger, and I place my trust completely in you. Though I may not see it today, your plan is wonderful - your plan is eternal. Please surround me with your Spirit today, and fill me with the power, wisdom, and self-discipline to carry on. Help my unbelief, Lord. Amen."

    DAILY INSPIRATION!!!!! Don’t stop what you’re doing Zack, your words bring healing and hope to so many of us, near and far. You may feel alone and tired on many days, but you have no idea how many lives you are touching. Reminds me of that scripture, that we are here to plant seeds, and water them, but God does the growing. You’re doing an incredible job!!
