I need YOU to stop and re-read that message!! This is true in so many ways.. I was in my second year of college when I discovered I was pregnant. At the time, I was living at home with my mother, working a part time job and 19 years old. When my son was born it shifted my entire life game plan. I tried to continue school, work full time, take care of my son and play house with his father. That became too overwhelming, it affected my relationship with his father and my ability to continue school. Throughout the years I’ve worked towards finishing my degree with numerous breaks in between, one occurring right now for approximately 4 years. I have 3 classes left to secure my degree and have been on “ice” from school for 4 years… !!!! Because my current job pays well and I am now on this new endeavor of launching my $10.00 makeup line, I feel at times that there is no need to finish. But I remember when I first began saying, “I can’t wait until I have only a few classes left!” If I stop now, I’m keeping myself at the beginning wishing for the finish line. I, at times wonder why certain things haven’t happened in my life. But I haven’t completed the course, maybe GOD is waiting on you to complete the course in order to move you forward.
So whatever you are trying to conquer regardless of how hard it has been, remember when it was harder….. Push through the kickbacks, discrepancies, doubts and emotions and JUST FINISH!.. Not only will you feel accomplished, you have just set yourself up to receive your next blessing! Because your purpose on this earth is to minister how great GOD is and what he has brought you from.
2 Timothy 4:7: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have kept the faith.
Acts 20:24: But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
Ecclesiastes 7:8: Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud spirit.
