There may be many terms that define this year:
And the list goes on.
And perhaps the above terms may describe this year for you. No one can negate that, however consider this perspective: what if the Lord was using this time to birth something within you? What if this tough, rough, and challenging year was your labor pains?
Think about childbirth. Labor, for some, is a hard, exhausting process. And for others, while they may have had some contractions, the laboring process wasn’t as difficult. However, all labor require some pain, some discomfort, and blood or sweat or tears.
The labor, once completed, produces this beautiful child. The labor is worth it, wouldn’t one say?
So what if this year were your labor pains? What if this was your time of discomfort, pain, and tears? Will you trust the Father with what’s coming? Your beautiful “child” is on its way! Maybe for some, it will be the birth of a new business. For some, it may be a rebirth for a struggling marriage. For others, it may be the birth of a book, a new career, or simply a new perspective.
We can’t promise that in 2021, the labor will be over. However, because we are in Christ, we can promise you that it’ll be worth it! The pain will produce a blessing. This pandemic may be a defining moment but it will not define you.
We can guarantee that the Lord, our God, is doing a new thing!
Your labor is not in vain. You are about to deliver a more profound faith! You are about to deliver a stronger relationship with the Lord! You are about to give birth to a steadfast walk in the Lord! You are about to birth your purpose, your mission, and your vision!
My friend, labor on just a little while longer! Pace that breath, P.U.S.H, and hold on to the Father’s hand! Cry out and endure just a little while longer. We know this year has been tough, but the Lord is with you. We know that this year has been unstable, but the Lord is our rock, our firm foundation. We know this year has been uncomfortable, just cling to the Holy Spirit who is our Comforter.
What you are about to birth, won’t compare to the pain you’ve experiencing. Just keeping P.U.S.H-ing
Peace and Blessings
