Have you ever felt like every time you start to make real progress you experience a significant setback and can’t seem to get ahead?
Sometimes life’s struggles hold us back from becoming all that we were created to be. We have disappointments that cause us to second guess ourselves and encourage us to walk away from the path we are on. The hard truth is that there are forces among us that don’t want you and I to achieve our full potential and live the life we were created to live.
1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
Unfortunately, today, we live in a society that encourages us to share the highlights and bury the pains and heartaches within. So many people face tough challenges every day and never bring them to light. They spend days, weeks, or months wallowing in the discomfort, and some get stuck for years.
Maybe you recently lost a key person on your team or received a bill that you can’t afford. Perhaps you’ve been ill or lost a meaningful relationship. I have no idea what exactly you may be going through in this season, but if you are like me, you are going through something. Whatever that something is for you, I want to encourage you to keep your head up and stay on the path.

We are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37)There is always something, but we must stay on the path! Click To Tweet
