Pressing On!

I was listening to a Joyce Meyer CD from one of her recent conferences... and she was talking about how we often times pity ourselves and/or make excuses for not being able to do, complete or succeed in the tasks that are given to us. Joyce Meyer says that "self-pity is the most debilitating thing there is" because it robs us of our strength and life. She says that we simply need to "PRESS IN, PRESS ON, and PRESS THROUGH!!"

As a mom, this is just what I needed to hear.. especially because when things are tough, when money is tight, when the kids are misbehaving, when the house is a wreck, when the dishes aren't done, when dinner has to be prepared.... it is easy to get stressed, complain, or just want to cry...

How neat it is to know that the Lord gives us the strength to PRESS IN, PRESS ON, and PRESS THROUGH any situation and any circumstance!!! God is good!! I pray that you will lean on the solid ROCK today... who gives you supernatural strength to be the best woman, mom and wife He has created you to be!

"I can do ALL things through Christ, who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13
