He has not brought me this far to leave me!

I went to church today and I could not believe that the month is practically over and we are yet to usher June into our lives. I have been praying and waiting for God to answer my humble prayers to no avail. I wonder, how long can I push? How long can I hang on?  Our Father states, ” No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

It is sad to think that I have lost all hope in man, in jobs, and possibly in myself too. I however have faith and hope in God, for what I would classify as a miracle.  Merriam Webster defines Miracle as, “an extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment” Yes, it is an extremely unusual thing to find a great job, if at all any job, in a harsh economy.

One of my favorite songs inn high school states, ” I do not believe he has brought me this far to leave me.” I do believe this, for if God were to bring me this far and leave me, it would be absurd, it would conflict his teachings, it would conflict my whole well  being: my very existence.

I leave you with the very words of that song that I remember in high school. It is by Mary Mary:

There will be mountains that I will have to climb
And there will be battles that I will have to fight
But victory all defeat, it’s up to me to decide
But how can I expect to win If I never try.

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe he brought me this far to leave me

Never said there wouldn’t be trials
Never said I would’t fall
ever said that everything would go
the way I want it to go
But when my back is against the wall
And i feel all hope is gone,
I’ll just lift my head up to the sky
And say help me to be strong

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe he brought me this far to leave me

Hook:
No you didn’t bring me out here to leave me lonely
Even when I can’t see clearly
I know that you are with me(so I can’t)

I just can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
and I don’t believe he brought
me this far to leave me

Dear Lord Jesus,

I pray that you will walk  through this week with me, extremely closely. I claim a miracle, I claim victory

AMEN
