Stretched to the Limit

I am viewed as a strong person and I guess I am. One of my brothers once told me that he knows few people who could have endured what I have. But little do people know how many times I have been to the breaking point, like now.

It would not take much to change my current situation, yet it eludes me. Whenever I feel that what I need is within reach, suddenly it is out of my grasp. The other day as I walked to my kitchen, I whispered to the Lord that I could not endure the suffering any longer. Then I returned to my bedroom and pulled up a Facebook game (my stress reliever) and I don’t know how it happened, but a Daily Bible Inspiration Quote popped up and this verse appeared:

Thou shall decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee 
and a light shall shine upon thy ways. 
– Job 22:28

I’ve made my decrees since I read that verse. But yet and still, I am stretched to my limit. Have you ever wondered when your change will come?

  1. My dear, yes I ahve been wondering that for the past few years. I ahve been praying, decreeing, affirming and saying God, I will do whatever it is…just please show me clue me in. And I think God is showing me the way and then I have to wonder if it was the devil instead. So, yes, waiting, praying and hoping for that change to come soon because I too feel like I am at the end of my rope.

      • Hang in there…I mean really, there has to be a limit to the crosses we have to bear isn’t there? I know that in many ways my life has been blessed and I am grateful for all of my blessings. All you have to do is get on the internet to see how others are living in other parts of the world and yes I know I am blessed…but even so there are times when you feel like you are just hanging on by a thread and the sword of Dameclis is right above your head.

      • So true! I can totally identify. I did name about 7 things I was grateful for, but I also know there is more for me and that is the frustrating thing. 😦 Thanks for the support. I really appreciate it. 🙂

  2. Just at the end of your strength, patience and ability to wait, is His grace. Ask Him for more grace SAB. Just when we have nothing left, El Shaddai can carry us. 🙂

    2Cor 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in
    weakness.

    Who are you, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain: and he shall bring forth its headstone with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Zec 4:7
