I had a thought to share this here! Perhaps just a thought, but when my heart is pure and the motives are good, I walk by faith. I hope this is a blessing.
There was a time when I was really, really tired ... and I really, really felt too incompetent to continue on ...
I really, really wanted to give up ...
I began questioning HOPE in my goal more than the faith that I once knew!
I began praying more for God to send someone "more capable" than me to "do it right " ...
I began "feeling like I would be a failure" at this thing I was working so hard to do!
At times, I felt like buzzards were flying over my head as I really felt like I was drowning ...
Now, this was in my work writing The Train Whistle, Sounding the call of God's Love ... but ... how fitting for any good matter in life! We are meant to press on and overcome!!! That no matter the good task, the effort is the same to overcome.
There is a song that pressed me on to do what God was calling me to do ... I also wanted someone to come and rescue me. The Song said, "I REFUSE TO SIT AROUND AND WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO MYSELF" Powerful inspiration to pull up the bootstraps and keep on ... keeping on!
Once, I was feeling downcast and I just needed to hear the words with a smile, when I asked the Pastor, "Is there even hope?" He smiled and said in confidence, "why SURE! There is always HOPE!" That was all I needed to hear to press on!
In the end, Jesus is already the only rescue we need & we are equipped to do as you say! And the most amazing thing is though we are never alone! Jesus will help us when we feel like we are drowning ... All we have to say Is Lord, Save Me!
Never forget to call on help, Lord save me!
Just thought I would add this to a really good message! Once we choose Hope, all things become possible!
I really base my life on Jesus! I Hope that this comment is a blessing as well.
PS, I will be happy to mail anyone a copy of The Train Whistle if you would like to read about why I love Jesus so much; and how He has made himself real to me. It is a book helping others to believe Jesus loves you too!
Today, I thank God He was with me through it all!
Love in Christ,
