Don’t grow weary…

I am exhausted. Truly, if I paused long enough I would fall asleep within 5 minutes. This time of year is particularly tiring for me, as a college student and an RA. I have 5 finals, and my RA partner and I have to complete 56 white glove check outs before I can go home. The end is so close, I can almost taste it. For a lot of people, I think they are exhausted as well. If you look into people’s eyes, you will see complete weariness. I’ll be honest, I’m struggling right now to maintain a cheerful attitude, love the way I am commanded to and devote myself like I know I should. I recently stumbled across a verse that hit home…

Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:9

I don’t know about you, but that hit me to the core. Every part of me wants to throw up my hands and say, “It’s too hard! I am sleep deprived. I need to study for my finals. I can’t do it!” But that is not what I’ve been commanded to do. I have been commanded to press on. Beloved, if you are weary, take heart! The Lord will give you the strength to carry on. As the verse says, do not grow weary of doing good. Even though I may not necessary “feel” like loving others or “feel” like doing good, I choose to do it anyways. The Lord choose to bear the burden of Calvary even though he may not have “felt” like it. Someone once told me…

Don’t feel your way into acting…

act your way into feeling!

Dearest, when the road gets rough and the waters rise above your head…keep going! You have the strength of an Almighty God beside you, upholding you and uplifting you!
