I have never understood that “The Struggle is Real” saying. But I am hear to tell you THE STRUGGLE IS REAL.
Everyone is struggling with something.
I think this is such an important thing to realize. When I envy other people and crazily think, “if I were like them, everything would be perfect.” I have to remind myself, no life is without struggles.
It took me a long time to realize that the struggle is part of the story. Without the valley, there can be no mountain.
I am a lover of fresh starts… new days, blank notebooks, August of every school year, January 1st, tanks of gas with zero miles. I constantly feel the urge to “start over” when I fall. However, in time, I have realized I cannot start over. I can never, on my own, wipe my slate clean. My story is my story.. ups & DOWNS included.
What are you struggling with?
Would you dare to just embrace it and know that
the Lord is working for our good (Romans 8:28)?
