Do you find yourself

Constantly in error

Making repeated mistakes

Running out of excuses

And then complaining

About the situation

Well it happens to all of us

You are not alone

Rise up and dust yourself off

The good thing is that you learn

From your mistakes

And the more you learn

The more you will grow

This is a process

Living and Learning

 

In Him we have redemption [that is, our deliverance and salvation] through His blood, [which paid the penalty for our sin and resulted in] the forgiveness and complete pardon of our sin, in accordance

with the riches of His grace

Ephesians 1:7 AMP

 

which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and understanding [with practical insight] 

Ephesians 1:8 AMP

Strength is not in the outer appearance

But

Lies deep within

We are all created differently

That is what makes us unique

But

Some of you don’t realize

Just how special you are

Begin to use your inner strength

Your gifts, talents, characteristics,

Such as

Kindness, patience, and compassion

These and much more

This exemplifies who you are

The person God intended you to be

 

 So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:27 AMP

Carrying a load

May sometimes feel light

On the other hand

The moment you begin to lift it

The pressure can become unbearable

Days that weigh you down

Are thoughts that you rehearse

Over and over

In your mind

Trying to determine a solution

For your circumstance

And you find yourself right back

Where you started

Give it to God!

 

casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection,

 and watches over you very carefully].

1 Peter 5:7 AMP

Working is a part of life

When you wake up

Whether you’re a parent, a child or an adult

There is work to be done

Fixing your bed

Preparing breakfast

 A student

An employee

We all have responsibilities

This is your lot in life

That transcends from

Generation to generation

Be glad

Be grateful

For out of all of the chores

You’ve acquired throughout your life

Remember you are loved

 

Behold, here is what I have seen to be good and fitting: to eat and drink, and to find enjoyment in all the labor in which he labors under the sun during the few days of his life which God gives him—for this is his [allotted] reward.

Ecclesiastes 5:18 AMP

Also, every man to whom God has given riches and possessions, He has also given the power and ability to enjoy them and to receive [this as] his [allotted] portion and to rejoice in his labor—this is the gift of God [to him].

Ecclesiastes 5:19 AMP

   For he will not often consider the [troubled] days of his life, because God keeps him occupied and focused on the joy of his heart [and the tranquility of

God indwells him].

Ecclesiastes 5:20 AMP

 

 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 KJV

Life’s troubles can seem like a battle

The affect it has on you

Can become overwhelming

The answers you need

Can be long and drawn out

Through the difficult times

Don’t give up

Don’t give in

Don’t claim it

Each day believe that

You are an overcomer

Have faith

The smallest amount of faith

Will get you through

Just believe and

Watch how your situation

Changes

You owe it to yourself

 

He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, [a]if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Matthew 17:20 AMP
