When the struggle is real...

  1. Wonderful post Jessica! So true our struggles were never meant to be carried beyond the cross but laid down at the altar in order for God to resurrect them into something better! Life without resurrection is a dead life.

  2. I love this post, Jessica, and am so honored that you chose to share it with us here at Candidly Christian. Your third truth is one that resonates deep within my soul. We have to lay it down so Jesus can pick it up.

    1. Thank you Heather! It was a pleasure to write for CC again! The 3rd one is probably my favorite as well, and learning more and more each day (especially lately) the resurrecting power of Jesus. He really resurrects it all!

  3. Just knowing God is there comforts me. That no matter what, God is in control. Thanks for sharing your story. I especially liked #4. So true! Blessings to you and yours!

  4. So much truth! It is hard to believe in the dark that what we saw in the light is still there but that’s what faith it. Believing what we cannot see! Having a strong community who will remind you when you’re down is so important! Blessings!

  5. I’m so thankful for God’s goodness and His truth that helps realign my heart and mind when “I need a resurrection.” Thanks for your encouragement today, Jessica!

  6. This is the second time I was led to your blogs the last few days and I feel like I relate so much as God has shown me the same truths to overcome fear in my life. I don’t have to see the path ahead-I can have peace when the problems aren’t solved and just trust in His care for me instead of trying to control and fix everything.

    1. Aw! Glad you have stumbled upon my blogs! :). Fear, is a constant struggle for me in many different ways, but a struggle that keeps me leaning on Him!

      Hope to have you stop by again!

    1. When I read your words, the word “refreshment” felt so weak. And in truth, it is. Because Jesus didn’t get refreshed, He got resurrected! Amen. Praying for you today Terri.

  7. Jessica, it seems that God is moving among women of faith and bloggers. My post for today is all about how God sometimes takes us from the safe harbor to lead us into deep water. Your post is so pertinent today and I found it very encouraging to know I am not the only one who goes through these times of doubt. In the end, as you said, it is all about Him. I pray that we all can abide in Him and get strength for today, because that is all we need. Thanks for sharing.

  8. God doesn’t resurrect our lives until we lay them down. We have to die to live, so that we are free from anything that kept us from living wholeheartedly for Him.

  9. Very powerful post! I think truth number one is the one I like the most. I have to remember that God is a Good of love, peace, patience, and kindness and that can be hard to remember that when my feelings don’t coincide with that truth.

  10. I think we all need resurrection from time to time. And, I think most people battle with quitting, too. I love Number 4. That is the struggle that takes many people down. When we focus on His worthiness, it makes our worthiness more relevant and intentional.
