There are days when I feel like I’m on top of the world, unconquerable; that this journey of life, the journey of Epilepsy cannot get us (my family) down! Then there are days…days like lately where sighing becomes like breathing, and the joy of days before seem like a million years away! Days where I feel not only as a mom but a caregiver that; all the steps taken , progress made, hopes built, appear to be vulnerable to collapsing! Those are times when “sighing” just doesn’t seem like enough and my mind feels as if everything is at a complete loss! When we tried everything and at that one moment we feel so unsuccessful in our efforts…
Lose not courage, lose not faith go forward ~Marcus Garvey
In reality there are going to be hard days, days where we are so tired, days where giving up, or saying we can’t do it come so naturally…but…
Lose not courage… don’t be unsuccessful in keeping possession of your ability to do the things you know are difficult or dangerous.
Lose not faith… don’t be deprived of your confident belief in the truth or value. don’t lose possession of your strength, or your unshakeable belief in things; don’t be deprived of your confidence or trust.
Go forward…resume what you were doing and advance to what is ahead!
We have been given a promise:
No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.” ~1Corinthians 10:13 MSG
In the words of many today “If God brought you to it, he’ll bring you through it!”
Our job is to “Lose not courage, lose not faith, go forward!”
