Sunday Scripture

Even the most seasoned Christian woman has "one of those days" every now and then. It may be from sickness or exhaustion or simply working too hard for too long. We've all had them and we can rest assured there are more coming down the road.

It's during those weary days that the voices start:
Just quit for a while and you'll feel better.
Why work so hard to begin with?
Does it really matter in the long run?
Give yourself a break.
No one will notice, or maybe not even care.

When we're physically and mental weary, our fight gives out. It's a struggle just to keep the forward momentum going, let alone keep up our Christian service. And those voices don't make the effort any easier.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9

This body, this earth and this moment in time aren't all there is to it. We're called to continue, to press on and to continue serving the Lord no matter how weary or how many voices may chime in. That's hard when we're simply flesh, but that Heavenly reward is all we need.

We may not see the results of our endurance right now, but that's alright. It can be frustrating, but maybe we're not meant to have pats on the back or ticker tape parades. There is no reward on earth that will ever compare to the riches waiting for us with Jesus Christ.

But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 2 Thessalonians 3:13

So how can we stay positive and focused on the road ahead?
* Stay grounded in God's Word.
* Stay faithful to all of your church services.
* Stay devoted to your brothers and sisters in Christ.
* Stay aware of those things that are slowing you down.

And how can we help others who are going through the same, difficult, weary times?
* Make a phone call.
* Send a note.
* Give a hug.
* Share some Scripture.
* Simple be there.

We all have our up days and our down days, but we don't have to let them ruin our mood, our service or our testimony. Rest quietly in the Lord and He will provide more than we could ever ask or think.
