Maximizing the Middle – Beloved Women – May 22, 2019

READ

“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 NLT

TODAY'S ENCOURAGEMENT:

It takes faith to start a journey. At the end, we reflect, but the middle is where we grow. It's the point in a process where the unexpected tests our resolve, or the unaddressed can no longer be ignored.

The middle is where the hard work becomes heavy or what we're wishing for seems distant.

My fascination with the middle has a purpose. My age declares the dare-to-be-you season of midlife, but I want to keep Christ at the center of all my endeavors.

If you are in the middle of meeting a goal, you know the midway point of a good work is a magnet for weariness, but God’s grace tells us to keep going. Keep believing in His promises. It's how to maximize the middle.

At the proper time, God's time, there's a harvest if we don't give up. Whether we’re in the midst of something messy, or trying to maintain what’s magnificent, we need His wisdom for our next steps.Thankfully, God gives us grace to grow. As we commit ourselves to His work, He helps us from beginning to end.

PRAY

Dear God, strengthen me for every good work. I don’t want to grow weary in the middle and giving up is not an option. By faith, I see a harvest. May you be glorified in every phase of my journey. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

REFLECT

Whether you’re dealing with something messy, or trying to maintain what’s magnificent, how can you trust God in the middle?
