Weariness
Do you ever struggle with feeling weary? Do you feel like, as a Christian, you shouldn't be feeling that way? So many times, Christians are just tempted to quit. We get fed up with doing all the right things and feeling like it's all for naught. The Bible says: "And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint." Galatians 6:9 (Amp). Weariness comes from working hard at something and not seeing any results. We wonder why we are not seeing the fruits of our labors. Why is that loved one not responding to the Gospel? Why is our teen-ager still rebelling? Will my spouse ever be saved? Will God ever heal my friend? We set our own time-table and wonder if God knows what He is doing. Why do I bother, we might ask. Rest assured that God knows what He is doing--He knows when to do it and how to do it. He sees the eternal picture--one that we cannot see. He is always on time and He is never late. We must trust Him in this. Jesus said that if we continue in doing right, we will reap. That is a promise. My encouragement for you today is to take courage. When you feel like you can't go on, let Jesus carry the load for awhile. Rest in Him, build up your strength by staying in His Word and in prayer, listen to some worship music, and remember that you are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ our Lord. He will give you rest when you need it and He will walk beside you all the way--He'll even pick you up and carry you in His arms if He needs too. After all, He is your Father and He cares so much! The harvest is coming, my friends. My Father said so.

Amen Jenna.
God has not only sustained me through the time since Izzy's accident... He has filled me over and over again. I could not have lived through this experience without God, without hope, and without faith. Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Thank you for the reminder and for the encouragement.
Annie
