Sometimes, I feel tired.

Sometimes, I feel that I’m spinning my wheels and not getting anywhere, and that I’m failing to meet the expectations of others.

Sometimes I feel bogged down in things that need doing, and I feel inadequate to the tasks that loom largest in my life – be a great husband, a great Dad, and a great Pastor.

However…

I always know that God’s approval matters more than the approval of others.

I always know that He equips those whom He calls and that I am adequate and can do all things through Him who gives me strength, even when I’m tired.

I always know I am redeemed, forgiven, and strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit.

And therefore I know that moving forward in faith is the right, best, and wisest thing to do.

Living by what I feel is a deadly choice.

Living by what I know, based on the unchanging truth of Scripture, is a life-giving choice.

I know the One in whom I trust, and I am sure that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until the day of His return.

~ 2 Timothy 1:12 NLT

know. Do you?

I am sure. Are you?
