Keep going… Do the next good thing… Don’t grow weary… But have you ever had a day- a week- a year- that just takes all you’ve got and then some? When sleep is never enough and the coffee pot needs an auto-fill button. My list grows longer because I didn’t get it all done yesterday. Heaven help anyone near me with an attitude. There’s just nothing left for that!
I love Mandisa’s song “Press On.” She just sings it like I feel:
How many storms have I been through
How many led me right to You
You’re using the pain, the hardest days
For my good, my good
So what do I fear
God, You are with me
Guiding my steps today
Lord, lead the way, lead the way
I will follow, I will press on
Even when the walk feels long
Your hands hold me together
Your love is with me forever
Through the broken, through the victory
I will praise You through it all
And run hard ’til the race is done
I, I’m gonna press on, press on,
How I need that encouragement, as Sarah’s medical saga continues with more detox, a new doctor, blood work, tests…. but no new answers! What is going on? All we are collecting is bills. Sigh. Sarah is having mild eye-sight improvement, lessened allergic reactions to fruit and some days, less nausea (that’s something).
“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. ” Galatians 6:9 Message
“GOD ’s there, listening for all who pray, for all who pray and mean it. He does what’s best for those who fear him— hears them call out, and saves them.” Psalm 145:18-19 Message
Thank you, Lord, for Your word and the nice weather.
