“I can’t take this anymore,” or “I don’t think I can go another day,” don’t help improve your situation at all. The mere fact that you are standing there making such a statement proves you wrong. You have certainly been able to take everything that has been dished out so far! And the truth is: If God is for you, who can be against you? (Romans 8:31)
Hopelessness creates the most negative vibrational pull there is, and to succumb to it will eventually drag you under to a place you can’t recover from. Focus on God’s promises and prepare some positive declarations to help pull you out from the hopeless cycle; this will help you to build the optimistic patience you need to overcome your circumstances.
