Today's devotional: Striving vs. Abiding
Tuesday, March 05, 2013
"Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat - for He grants sleep to those He loves" (Psalm 127:1-2).
Wow - I never heard this verse before but it is so applicable. When I give anything to God, it seems to be easier and more peaceful then when I wrestle the burden back.
