Verse of meditation and encouragement today:
2 Thessalonians 3:13
“As for you, brothers, do not grow weary.”
I feel like every day I wake up, war is waged. War is waged in my heart. War is waged in my job. War is always waged. I am in a constant battle with my own anxiety. With my own thoughts. With media. With people who don’t love God. With people who want me to fail. With my own friends pining for me to forsake the one I love. I wake up to a battle. And sometimes, being good, always, in every battle is hard. It’s weary. And this verse encourages me. It’s preaching to my heart:
Heart, keep going.
Heart, keep running.
Heart, keep fighting.
Heart, keep on, keeping on.
Heart, don’t grow weary in this battle because better things are a head.
