Fresh Hope – 22nd May 2017

Have you ever felt like sometimes you are under too much pressure and that you can’t cope anymore?

I’m sure from time to time, we all feel like that.

Today I was thinking about rubber elastic bands. When I open my desk drawer, there they are, all different shapes and sizes and really are quite useless…UNTIL…they are stretched.
Yes, that’s right, the only use for an elastic band is for it to be stretched – then it will reach its full potential.
It’s absolutely no use, until that time. It’s just taking up space and doing nothing of any significance.

It’s amazing what we can do when under pressure. It’s amazing what we can achieve when stretched.
I remind myself daily, that God is with me, helping me and He will give me everything I need to get through today.

So the next time you feel that stretch, or that pressure, change your thinking and say “ThisĀ is where I can become all God wants and needs me to be.”
