I Almost Gave Up

This piece was written on 28 March 2019.

Up until today, I believe this is still relevant and I hope that as you are reading this, you will find encouragement and strength.

Hold on to God in the storm. You are not alone.

‘’I find rest knowing that God has it all worked out for me.

Not too long ago, I was in a place that I never thought I would ever be in. I ALMOST GAVE UP ON GOD.

I never understood why I had to go through what I went through. Humiliated, torn apart, crushed, provoked to the point where I could not handle it anymore.

And as I look back, I get teary and feel overwhelmed by how God kept me. I realized that it was only His grace and love that brought me back to realizing that I am completely nothing without Him.

Last night I sat down and the feelings and thoughts all came back again. I was there; I was at that dark place in my life! I went through that! I went through something that could have killed me spiritually, mentally and psychologically but yet I made it! Why???

My answer is: GOD!

This is why I have a reason to praise God. I have a reason to live. I have a purpose.’’
