I shared this message on my personal social media account a few months ago. When I was thinking of what I wanted to share on Chronicles for this month, this came to mind. I will let the message speak for itself and hope that if anyone is thinking of giving up on anything they've worked hard to build, that they will rethink it after reading today's post.
Sometimes, during the course of pursuing our dreams, something can come along that can have an affect on us. It can be a financial hardship or a broken relationship. It can be thoughts of doubt or discouragement. Those things can affect us mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. In those times we can be tempted to give up on something that we've worked really hard for. The emotional toll of it can seem too great. In those moments we may not appreciate the value of the thing we've worked so hard to build, no matter what stage of the building process we are in. In those moments, we may not have the will to keep pushing or see the light at the end of the tunnel. If I may, I'd like to encourage you to never let anyone or anything destroy what you've built. Don't stop it, delete it, trash it, or throw it away. You may have to temporarily take a break to get yourself together, then come back to what you were building, but don't let anyone or anything destroy what you've built. Don't let anything influence you to stop pursuing your dreams. Don't allow doubt or discouragement to make you quit and give up. Don't let a broken relationship or toxic friendships make you put your dreams aside. Don't let the grief of who left you make you give up on your dreams. You've worked too hard for it and you've sacrificed too much for it. Protect it, value it, appreciate it, achieve it, but don't let anyone or anything destroy it. (Helpful scripture: John 10:10)
