Hard Pressed

So, we're at the end of week two of being officially "back in school".  A few months ago, I developed this blog which I am trying to keep up with; and have recently incorporated fun "Giveaways" with it. I have embarked on an Etsy adventure ( Another project the Holy Spirit has been nudging me to do is officially under way. I'm working part-time at Twigs (, which I love. Our home-fellowship group is nearing it's three year anniversary. I am still a wife and mother, not to mention countless other things (hence the name for my Etsy site). Suffice it to say, I am feeling a bit hard-pressed from every side.
How about you? I thought so.
Isn't it a comfort to know that there are others out there feeling the same way; to know you're not alone?
I think so.
But what's even better than that is the fact that we have a Father in Heaven who is with us all the time, all the way. His Spirit is ever hovering about, giving strength and courage. Jesus is faithfully, constantly by our side, holding our hand and lifting us up.
Upon contemplating all of this, I have realized something about myself. And that is, I have come a long way!
Although I have been feeling the pressure of life, I have not cracked!
I have found that I have grown as a child of God, and what would have caused me to melt down in the past, has very little effect on me now.
Through the trials and fire of life, this vessel has hardened.
The Bible says that trials test us so that we might be able to withstand and continue to praise God whatever the circumstances! Wow!
We can't do this on our own, but by the faithfulness of God, we can! He is ever on our side, cheering us on to victory!
As a child of God and a co-laborer with Christ, we would like to encourage you today.
If you're feeling hard-pressed, know in your heart of hearts that we are cheering you on! You can do it! One step at a time, one breath at a time, one moment at a time!
If Christ is for you, who can be against you? Nothing else matters. You have victory!
Praise God and bless you!
