John 15 4


When it isn’t easy and things are tugging you in so many directions, remain.

When the outcome is anything but what you’ve envisioned for your life, remain.

When your doubts are screaming so much louder than the quiet whispers of faith, remain.

When you feel as though your ship has left the harbor without you, remain.

When your gut tells you there is no longer purpose here, remain.

When your efforts have gone unrecognized and the pain of anonymity plagues you, remain.

In these moments, your sweet surrender and perseverance in God will still your restless soul.

When you falter, remain.

When you want to escape and run and flee, muster the courage to remain.

When you wait and wait and all the wrong answers flood your weary head, wait some more.

In faith we grow, and through adversity we become what we had never dreamed possible.

Simply remain.

    When we wait on God and surrender to His divine timing, He is so faithful! I did not meet my husband until the age of 45 and he was worth the wait. Check out my blog of perfect timing stories.
