We all go through times when we are doing all we know how to do, but nothing seems to be changing. It can be incredibly frustrating, and many times we can feel like giving up! I am in a season like that in my life right now, and I want to share a quick video of what the Holy Spirit reminded me of today. I pray this is an encouragement to you today as well!
