I’ve just been feeling extremely shitty lately. I just feel like I’ve been rude to everyone and I have no control over anything anymore and all my motivation is gone. I’ve been wondering why the hell do I even exist more lately than I usually do and I just feel more pathetic and ughhh. Next year is also my last year of high school and I feel so pressured because i have no idea what the fuck i’m suppose to do with my life. I’m not even good at anything and when i try really hard on an assignment I just get shit grades. It’s like when I’m not trying or trying my best everything still doesn’t work out either way. I even push away things I want to do like reading bible verses, exercising, or finishing a book. I don’t even know anymore.
“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17, NKJV)
Do you desire to have more faith? Scripture tells us that faith can grow and increase. Notice that today’s scripture doesn’t say, “Faith comes by having heard the Word of God one time.” It says that faith comes by hearing — in the present tense. We have to hear the Word of God over and over again in order for it to take root in our hearts and transform our minds. Sure, God’s Word can transform us in an instant, but most of the time, our faith grows as we hear the Word of God again and again.
Just as a seed needs water daily to grow, your spirit needs the Word of God daily. The more you hear God’s Word, the more you know Him. The more you know Him, the more you will be able to believe Him — and that’s what faith is!
Today, why don’t you choose a few scriptures to meditate on? Write them down and carry them in your purse or wallet. Let that truth sink down into your soul. Let the truth of the Word transform you and move you forward into the abundant life God has prepared for you!
