Doing hard things is hard.
The words aren’t just the catch-phrase for a movement, but a reality. Doing hard things takes determination, grit, and die-hard commitment to push through the pain.
Right now, I’m on the brink of the biggest hard thing I’ve ever done. Throughout my journey as a rebelutionary, I’ve done things that terrified me. I’ve grown stronger and braver. I’ve tested the limits of my comfort zone and gone beyond them. I’ve seen God move. I’ve felt his presence uplifting me. But through it all, I’ve known one thing: the impact our hard things have isn’t confined to this earthly realm.
And neither is the opposition we receive as we do them.
Before the hardest things I’ve done, and the biggest breakthroughs I’ve experienced, I’ve always felt the oppression, attack, anxiety, and irrational fear trying to overtake my mind. I’ve been paralyzed with insecurity and doubt.
This time is no exception.
I’m overwhelmed and terrified. The task before me seems insurmountable, the fear in my heart overpowering.
But every time, without fail, God has brought me through, and done things greater than I could fathom.
So I’m pushing through. Not giving up. And most importantly, I’m fighting.
