Whether rain or shine, dooms-day or hay-day, we march on. Why? Well, we pretty much don’t have a choice but to move forward. Unless we do something drastic.
Please, please, please don’t do anything drastic.
This verse in Galatians tells us why we shouldn’t give up. In due season, we will reap.
That is, IF we do not give up. So, please don’t give up.
I did that once – for months – and it wasn’t good. Matter of fact, it was awful, mostly for everyone around me. My problem was I kept looking at the problem. And it looked from the outside like it was never going to change. It appeared that I was going to have to live life in complete and utter misery.
And so I gave up.
And, one day after my husband woke me up to reality – that I needed to get up and get going again – I realized the solution. The answer had surrounded me. I heard this same message from various people, plus our preacher in a sermon at church, from an article I read on-line, everywhere it seemed and all in the span of a few days.
Do you think God was trying to get through to me? Duh! Here’s what He finally got through to me.
I needed to stop looking at my problem…and look at the Lord instead.
That’s what I started doing. Every day. And, then I noticed some really good things in my life – reasons to be thankful. I also realized that if I looked at God Almighty Who is strong and powerful, my problem didn’t seem so big anymore. After all, God can and does fix problems!
These are your two main “how” answers right here.
- Get your eyes off your problem and get them onto the Lord.
- Look around and notice the good things and fill your mind with thankfulness for your blessings.
So, do you think you could do these two main things and see how the changes give you a new perspective? Can you handle seeing some good things now while you wait for reaping in the due season?
