When You’re Up Against A Struggle ~ February 11

When You’re Up Against A Struggle

That shatters all your dreams

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12

We should be content in whatever state we are currently in, but we shouldn’t be content to the degree we give up our hopes and dreams. We should be content as we continue to move toward our goals.

The things we hope for are the key to this way of thinking. The phrase, “be careful what you hope for”, comes immediately to mind. The thing is, when we hope and strive for something, we must be patient, allowing God to get us to our destination in His good timing. Too often, we give up too easily when the going gets tough, or it’s taking longer than we want it to take to achieve our success.

Never give up! If your hope is instilled in you by the spirit of God, it will come to pass. But, be advised; when your hopes and dreams are godly, Satan will use anything and anyone to discourage and try to stop you. Don’t allow them to shatter your dreams, and don’t fall for the tired old line, “It just wasn’t meant to be”. If God is behind it, it will be, and until He tells you to stop, keep hoping, and continue striving for your goal.

    Charles,
    Wanted to share this good news!

    Dear Family and Friends,
    I received notification this morning, “A Case of Hearts” placed first in the “Reader’s Choice Award” for Single Title/Mainstream cover in the Houston Bay Area’s “Judge a Book By Its Cover” contest.

    I want to take this opportunity to thank Chris Holmes Photography and Alexis Thomas for the fabulous design work. You made this cover a stand out.

    Thank you to all who took the time to place a vote at the website. Also, to those who shared the site on their Facebook page, inviting friends to vote. Please know it is much appreciated. I’m always grateful when this book is given an opportunity to shine.

    The whole project came about with the help of a wonderful group of people.

    Again, thank you to the Write Place for all the great work you do.

    Keegan, I’m sure that smile helped make it a winner. LOVE YOU!

    From my heart,
    Kathryn
