We’ve been praying together for four whole years. I can hardly believe it.
Thank you for your faithfulness and for your perseverance. There were so many times I wanted to quit. Satan crept in and filled me with doubt as to my accomplishing anything here. I felt isolated and alone like my words were falling on deaf ears (or, since this is in written form, blind eyes), like my words were just going out into the abyss. I wondered if this was just busywork, if it was really bringing glory to God. Just, so many doubts would cloud my thoughts.
But then, God in His infinite wisdom and perfect timing would send me some reassurance. He would have someone tell me how a post touched them, or that a topic was just what they needed to read and pray about at the exact time God prompted me to write it. Someone would leave a comment, or there would be a spike in views or shares. Just little things to let me know that God wanted me to continue.
Every morning I pray for words. Every morning, the words come (sometimes a little later than I’d like but God doesn’t need to adhere to my schedule). God is at work in this community/ministry. It’s all Him and I praise Him for allowing me to be a part of something that brings Him glory.
Thank you for your faithfulness and perseverance. Thank you for praying with me.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2 ESV
Please join me this week in praying for perseverance. Let’s pray that we, and our loved ones, are faithful to what God calls us to do. Pray that we listen to the stirrings of the Holy Spirit and not let Satan cast doubt on our spiritual walk with the Lord. Pray for strength. Pray for victory in spiritual warfare. Pray that we persevere to the end.
