Galatians 6:9, "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
I read this verse last week and it was just the encouragement I needed in the midst of starting to feel discouraged in mothering. It was considerably harder to stick with my goals of limiting Emily's TV. I got easily frustrated with her desire to help in her own way. I have hardly used my prayer closet since setting it up. Lots of things making it easy to be discouraged.
Doing good can be tiring and make us feel weary. But, look at the incredible promise of a harvest - which is conditional on us not giving up! Thank You, Lord, for this beautiful promise and great transfusion of courage from your Word! May it be the hope and strength I need through relying on You to do Your will today.
Take heart! Look forward to the harvest! Don't give up!
