“Don’t confuse your path with your destination. Just because its stormy now doesn’t mean you aren’t headed for sunshine.” – Unknown
I ran across this quote on Pinterest. Unfortunately, I don’t know whom exactly gets the credit for it; but I do know this is definitely a mistake that I have made at various times in my life.
Today I want to encourage you to take a moment and refresh your perspective. Sometimes life’s circumstances can become so overwhelming that we take our eyes off of the ultimate goal, and begin to magnify the molehills until we convince ourselves that they are mountains standing before us. Before you know it, you’ve settled within yourself that your life is never going to be more than struggles and hard climbs.
But today, remember the quote. Your path is meant to take you through to your destination. It is not the place for you to stop, settle, and make your home. The path may take you to high places and low places along the way, but the stops are only temporary. Seasons do change. And after you have suffered a while, he (God) will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation (1 Peter 5:10). Your destiny still awaits you! So again I say be encouraged! Don’t give up, and please don’t give in. Press, because the prize of the victory is well worth it at the end!
As always, I thank you so much for stopping by, and wish you a safe and wonderful day!
