Have you ever been on an airplane with someone who forgot a nicotine patch? It isn’t pretty. One woman I had the pleasure of traveling with literally asked “How much longer?” every 20 minutes during the 7 hour flight! Twenty minutes was all the time she could handle before needing reassurance once again that we were indeed getting closer to our destination. How about you? Are you wondering how much longer? Do you need some reassurance today?
You are stronger than you think. You are smarter than you think. You are capable of more than you think. The burden may be incredible at the moment. What’s in front of you may seem insurmountable. One obstacle may have been hurdled just to face another and another. You may have a thousand questions. You may be just plain tired.
There may be a multitude of voices telling you to quit, that what you are doing is useless. No one would blame you for quitting or going another way. This path is difficult and sometimes it feels like you are walking through quick sand.
Remember. You hear the faint whisper in you spirit. Remember the purpose for what you are doing. Remember the need is it fulfilling. Remember who or what is on the other side of your effort.
You can endure and persevere. You can because of the One who endured and persevered before you. For the joy set before Him, you, He endured the cross and disregarded its shame. He arose from the dead and as He ascended to heaven said, “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Remember. You are strong, smart, capable and able to keep going because Jesus, the ascended one, is with you. Remember!
Unhindered…live the masterpiece!
