Put In The Work – Beloved Women – October 11, 2022
“But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.” (Luke 12:48 ESV)
This year I decided to start a vegetable, fruit and flower bin in the back of my house. As I was tilling the ground in certain places it kept causing me to stop, so I had to dig a little harder and deeper to dig up big rocks and stones that were in the way. Still, I didn’t allow that to keep me from completing my goal.
When we are working hard to accomplish the things that God has given us we can sometimes become very discouraged. We can become lonely, weary, lose motivation, lose heart or even our focus. In order for us to reach our goal, we have to put in the time, the energy and the work necessary for us to complete the work. Right now, it is a lot, but when we can trust God in what he has called us to do, and press through to overcome obstacles in our way, what an awesome testimony we will have.
Dear Heavenly Father, I praise You because I am wonderfully and fearfully made. I am grateful that You have chosen me for such a time as this. I realize that I cannot do this on my own and I trust, lean and depend on You that I may carry out the very things that You have called me to do. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
