Standard

Good morning, DearHeart.

All three of my sons have either recently moved or are about to move to different homes. And the process with each home has been, well … a process.

Sometimes tedious.

Sometimes tiring.

Sometimes frustrating.

I keep remembering one of my father-in-law’s, Poppy’s, daily, go-to phrases: “anything worth doing is worth doing right”; and if it wasn’t right he made us back up and start over. He was a perfectionist. No shortcuts. He taught us to stick with it even when it was hard. Because, he knew the reward and the pride that would come for a job well done. He knew it would be so worth it. He was right …

* “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9 NIV).

* “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV).

* “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” (Hebrews 10:35,36).

We are not to give up. We are to be persistent & persevere. We really cannot conceive all that God has for us.

You know, I’m not the same person I was 5 years ago, or ten years ago. Life changes us and shapes us.

I have found myself wondering …What did I miss those times I gave up? Could it be that I gave up when I was right on the edge? Was I on the verge of a breakthrough? Could it be that something was about to happen? Perhaps about to change? May I be faithful to keep on keeping on.

At all times.

In all ways.

You just never know when something will reap a harvest … always at the proper time.

The Proper Time = His time.

Wake up.

Press on. You’re so close.

Go.
