How many times do we feel like giving up? Some people would ask if I was only referring to today! It can be so hard to persevere. When we see no change it is so easy to get discouraged. You know that word alone basically means to lose our courage. The Bible tells us over and over again to take courage and not give up. There's a reason for it, we do it all too often. I have felt that way lately too. I have prayed and prayed and prayed and though there have been little victories, I want the big victory because I am sick and tired of all the stupid little battles along the way. I know I am not alone. So God has been working on me in a big way this last week or two. Don't despise the small beginnings and it's not all about me are some of the messages He has spoken. Then last night, I got a huge present from Him and I can see the light getting brighter at the end of my tunnel. Then thescripture in my mail box this morning was 2Chron 15:7. It says Be strong and courageous for your work will be rewarded. How many times has He also reminded me that my work WILL be rewarded. Now if I can just not lose heart :) So let me perhaps encourage you to hang in there. Our efforts are never in vain if God is in the picture. His timeing is always perfect and not according to our panic. I will reap my reward. Will you? I think so!
