“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn.”
I’m not exactly a Bible beater, but for whatever reason, this verse has traveled forward from the depths of my childhood, church-going mind to permeate my brain the past few days.
And I’m loving it.
I’m at a point in business right now where I’m working, working, working, and WORKING. HARD. But I’m not seeing much reward.
Not that any person in particular is actively trying to sabotage me, but it definitely feels like I’m up against a brick wall.
So the idea of this verse is comforting for me.
It’s in the book of Isaiah, which I had to Google before writing this because I had no idea where to even find it. I also have no idea to the context of what’s going on in the book of Isaiah when this verse is said, but the best I can figure is that God is talking to a woman who’s had some serious bad luck in life, but he’s letting her know that he still has her back. That she’s going to fulfill the life of her dreams. That she’s got no need to hide in shame, that he’s promising that no matter what, he’s still gonna bring her glory.
Which is pretty darn cool, if you ask me.
And not as much in the “love God / be religious” sense… but in the idea that if you’re called to something bigger than yourself, that calling WILL have your back, if only you continue to keep the faith in what you’re doing.
I also saw these verses in 2 Corinthians:
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. Since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
So, if you’ve been working your ass off and your dreams aren’t quite coming to fruition yet, keep the faith. Keep your head up. Your ideas are not impossible, and now is not the time to give up.
Keep doing the work, keep showing up, and keep feeling motivated from the inside about your dreams, even if you don’t have external proof of them yet.
I hope you’re having an amazing work week so far, and that this email finds you well & will give you the motivation you need to keep moving forward if you need it.
