Giving it Your ALL


I want to speak directly to the person or persons who feel as though they keep trying and yet they see no results. Many times, in life we have our hearts set on something and we do all we can within ourselves to help others and the more we try it seems that the harder it becomes.

You feel as though you are running this race all alone, you even have asked yourself why even bother because no one is listening? You even gave up on it for a while only to find yourself right back it anyway. If this sounds like you today, I want you to know that your hard work and perseverance is not in vain.

The bible tells us that the race is not to the swift but to those who endure to the end. Keep running the race do not give up, and yes it will get hard at times. It might feel as though you are running it alone at times.

You will feel the pressure but do not give up! When you feel weak ask Jesus to give you strength, for at the end only those who endure will win.

Father God, I ask you this day to touch those who are running this race Lord, give them what they need Lord. Encourage and strengthen them at every step they take in the race in the Mighty name of Jesus I pray. I thank you for your Grace and your Love you give to us each day. In Jesus name I pray. AMEN, AMEN and AMEN.

Here is a link from my list of things that I wrote that helps me too when I feel like I am running this race alone.

    Exactly Warren. Thank you for engaging in the post. I hope you had a nice weekend.

  7. Hello there! Can you explain to me how you keep disappearing from my Reader? I had to search for you again. I know I don’t read daily, but when I sit down to catch up I want to touch base with you! Trust all is well my sister! Oh! I finally read your bio! Love it! Wonderful Jesus!

    Hey sis. Things are very well here. I appreciate you asking. I was having a problem with my site here. I have been considering if I want to continue with a free site here or pay for it.

    Because I do blog as well as Podcasting, I am wanting to change things around that will get me better exposure and to have everything in one place inside of me having three sites separate.

    And because of that I changed the link here to devotioncafe instead of desirayl. Now I know you like brainstorming. If you have any ideas you would like to throw at me regarding sites, please feel free to share them with me. I could use the help. (Help get it?) (It was one of my blogs where I talked about do not be afraid to ask for help)

    Glad to hear you loved the bio. Your vacation is coming up soon, right? You ready?

  9. Yes! Three weeks away! I pay for my site and have access to free podcast. I’m sure they will charge for the podcast soon! lol! But if you leave, you must let me know!! I see that you’re really established. I’ve been preaching a long time, but am just stepping out to do something on my own. Consolidation will make it easier. Three sites are a lot to oversee and still do ministry and life. I’ll pray God lead you to what is best for you! Wonderful Jesus!

    Do you use wordpress for the site you pay for? WOW! Preaching. What a calling on your life. Stepping out on your own takes faith that is for sure. That is how I feel about consolidating to one site. It takes so much energy to do these things. And I want to make it easier for my followers to you know?

    God is at the wheel. AMEN

  11. Yes! I have a premium site that I pay for, along with my name wonderfuljesus

  12. desirayl says:

    Thank you Sweetie. when I do change it I will send you an email my dear.

  13. Sounds great! Enjoy your weekend! Wonderful Jesus!
