Hello Fellow Travelers…Are we there yet?
I bring this up because I’ve been a believer since Sunday School age 7. I’m 57 now and it seems like a very long bumpy ride, and I for one, would like to get home. I’m wondering what verses of scripture you lean on when you feel especially worn out? Can you relate to this?
I don’t know about anyone else, but just looking around at all that’s going on makes me so weary of this world. It’s the media (which I can’t even watch anymore), it’s everywhere we go these days.
Revelation 3:8 (Church of Philadelphia)
“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
It’s encouraging that Jesus acknowledges we are weary and have little strength. This seems like an attribute of the Faithful Church (so it’s kind of a good thing). It’s also what Jesus is saying to us at the very end of the race…almost home…crossing that finish line any day now.
How come Jesus doesn’t give us a pep talk “Stay Strong, get out there and keep going…”
Please share your thoughts and experiences and how you cope. God Bless
