Three little words, said when passing by me as I struggled to breathe, struggled to keep putting one foot in front of the other, and wanted to quit.
“You got this.”
I seriously almost burst into tears. My friend had no idea, but I needed to hear those words. I’m sure you’ve had those moments too. Moments when you feel that nothing is going right and nothing you do is right. Moments when you feel overwhelmed by the mountains being thrown in your path. Moments when you aren’t sure how you’re going to make it through to the next day. Moments when everything seems to be spiraling out of control.
Some people might say, “You knew what you were getting into.” Perhaps that’s true. I don’t think any two marriages are the same, and each has its own unique struggles. Take the struggles that occur in a traditional first marriage, and add in the complexities and nuances that come with combining two families into one…then turn on the blender. I feel beat up many days…and that’s just from dealing with my own biological kids!
Those three little words were a reminder – I can do this. I’ve got this. More importantly, GOD has this and He has me in the palm of his hand.
If you’re struggling today, I want to encourage you – YOU’VE GOT THIS!! Don’t quit. You are not alone! Whatever you are facing, you can get through it.
“With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes.”
Psalms 60:12 NLT
