My friends, do not grow weary. And if you have grown weary, take rest in the thought, that all he wants from you is praise, not performance. If we come to Jesus with anything more than nothing, we come with too much. All we need is need, because He’s the one who does the work, and He’s reworking all things into good for those who love Him. He’s after a grateful people, not a perfect people.

He’s after a responsive people, not a self-helped one. Live loved. That’s our call. That is our job. Even when we’re worn out, worn thin, and feel like we’ve got nothing left to offer Him, all He demands is our nothing.

Like the old hymn says, “All the fitness He requires is to feel your need of Him…” Nothing is all we bring to Him because nothing is the place that He can fill.

God take my mind, my thoughts, my time, my strengths, my gifts, take whatever left of time i have in this world. Take all that i am, all that i have and all that i will be. I’ll give myself entirely to you.

Perseverance means that you are focused, that you are believing what God says about your situation. It’s looking away from distractions and any negative, defeating thoughts. Perseverance looks away from discouragement and looks to the Word of God. Perseverance has a voice, and it says things like, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper! If God is for me, who can be against me! I am more than a conqueror through Jesus!”

Whatever you are believing for today, keep believing! Stand strong and fight the good fight of faith. Ask God to give you endurance, perseverance and patience so that you can see His promises fulfilled in every area of your life!

As a Christian woman your identity is not merely a “Proverbs 31” woman. No, your identity is ultimately found in Christ. There is nothing you can add or subtract to this truth. Jesus is enough. While it is a noble thing to be like that woman in Proverbs 31, she is but a drop in the bucket of how radical and glorious your identity as a daughter of God really is. Jesus is the fullness of our identity. He is the ultimate standard of goodness, kindness, gentleness, resourcefulness, beauty, and love. He is the perfect One, not the Proverbs 31 woman, and we now get to share in His nature. Seek to reflect and imitate Jesus above all else. As you conform to His image you will automatically reflect what is laid out in that famous chapter. Ladies, rest in the fact that your identity is secure in Jesus and that there is none greater than Him.

The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.
