“Just when you think you’re out of gas, God will miraculously provide you with the resources you need to finish the job.” ~Taryn Barnes
There are times in life where we feel as though we are spiritually on empty, struggling to keep the faith in our walk with God. It is in moments like these, we find ourselves taking our eyes off of the prize, trying to make sense of our situations using our own personal human understanding.
When you’re spiritually on E, fuel up by studying the word of God. You’ll find that in the Bible the trials and tribulations we endure are nothing new under the sun. Seek peace and understanding by leaning on the Word to renew your spirit. Remember that through life’s challenges, we gain a deeper relationship with God, so don’t be dismayed should obstacles come your way.
