Closer Than You Think...

I have started reading Joel Osteen's Book It's Your Time and I canNOT express how much it has helped me.

The very first chapter is about believing, not giving up on your dream, and reminding you that you are closer than you think.

The closer you are to God, the more you pray, the harder the devil tries to attack you. We have definitely experienced this lately...with our finances, with our countless negative pregnancy tests, with our jobs, with our marriage...the devil is trying his best to bring us down.

But Joel's book reminded me to, "Have faith in God. I tell you the truth. You can say to this mountain, 'Go, mountain, fall into the sea.' And if you have no doubts in your mind and believe that the thing you say will happen, then God will do it for you."~Mark 11:22-23

And I do believe.

I believe that we are closer than we think.

Thank You Lianna! I really needed this today. It seems we are also getting attacked by the devil recently. Everything you mentioned is a struggle for us as well. I think the biggest thing that makes it worse for me is that I can become so emotional because of infertility that it affects all the other aspects of our marriage/life. I know it's not fair to the people I love, especially my husband. It is a constant battle for me. I will keep you in my prayers. You are not alone. You have inspired me to take a good look at my very weak faith.
