The Struggle Is Real...But so is MY God!

Have you ever been in a place where you're just done? I know I have.

The struggle is most certainly real in our lives. There are so many challenges and heart aches we have to go through. A loss of a loved one, a loss of a job or marriage, a wayward child, financial struggles, feeling alone or abandoned, or even just the annoyances of the day to day tasks we have to do. Life isn't easy. It's sometimes hard to stay positive and keep on going! Isn't it?

One thing that always helps me is reaching out to Jesus and just asking Him to help carry my burdens and for the strength to do “all the things”.

Remember friends, the struggle is real, but so is our God! Philippians 4:13 tells us that “We can do all things through Him who gives us strength!”

Try and keep that in mind next time you're trying to make it through on your own and I promise if you ask Him, He will strengthen you!

My name is Jessica O’Dell, I am a stay at home, work from home wife and mom!

I’ve been married to my husband, Michael for 7 years and we have two littles here on earth with us- Sadie Grace, who is four, soon to be five and a sweet little guy, Cooper, who turned two this year.

We also have a son, our oldest, Colby in heaven. He would be six now! He passed away on Christmas Eve in 2012 and was stillborn at 39 weeks. It's been a rough journey but God has been with me every step of it and I know He will continue to be.

I love Elly and Grace and the mission for their adorable, comfy shirts! My first Elly and Grace shirt was a tee shirt that said “Thy will be done”, which is one of my favorite songs! I'm so excited to be a part of their team and spread the love and hope we have in Jesus with them!
