Stop struggling....

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 

                         John 14:6

I've been struggling a lot. This emptiness I've been feeling was not fun. My loss of will power was the worst thing.
It's like I couldn't stay off of social media even though it was draining me. And with school and all I couldn't read near as much in my Bible as I should have. Or spend the time with God that I should have.

Today God showed me what was wrong with me.

I needed to spend time in His word. I had really lost sight of that. I was struggling on my own to do everything. 

On our own strength were nothing ya'll.

He showed me in every aspect in my time with Him today that feeding off of Him, spending that amazing time with Him, was what I was lacking.

And something else, He helped me realize it's not a bad thing to admit a lot of social media drains you. And you need to cut back. It's not a bad thing to admit you need to hold off on things because when you do them so much instead of Jesus, you're a broken mess.

And something else He told me, and this is so special to me. 

Stop struggling.

Some of the most amazing times I have with God is when I just lay there, and think about Him. Mediate. And know He's got it.

I have to quit always wondering if I'm doing everything right. I have to be like Mary and sit at Jesus feet and listen even when there are other things that need to be done. BUT, she chose what was most important and Jesus said that wouldn't be taken away from her. Wow ya'll! A clean house or remembering what you did in school can be taken away. But this can't.

Sometimes we have to sit in dirty bedrooms, but if were sitting with Jesus... the dirty bedroom is okay.

I hope and pray this encourages ya'll tonight. I wanted to share this with you lovely people.

Are you ready tonight to stop struggling and do the thing that won't be taken away from you?

I'm am. The other is just plain exhausting.

Who's with me?

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Luke 10:42


  1. This was amazing, so encouraging and I am so happy for you! You rock, Beth! :D

  2. This was beautiful <3 Thank you so much for sharing this truth with us, Beth!

  3. Definitely true! Spending time in the Word should be our number one priority. When we put Jesus first, everything else will fall into place. Thank you for sharing this!

    By the way... I noticed on your public author Instagram account that you and Reya managed to get the blue and white BJU T-shirts -- however did you manage that?! :P (Those shirts are new as of October/November -- I was one of the very first to get one at BJU's high school festival! I love my shirt!)

  4. Tagged you on my blog, Beth! :)


Welcome! I'm excited to hear what's on your heart!!
