No Matter What I’m All In

307362AC-5A09-4CFB-AB73-98DBE1052963It never surprises me that it’s mainly Saturday nights that I struggle to get to sleep. I’ve got enough nighttime meds in me to put down a grizzly bear. Plus I took most of my nighttime meds almost 3 hours ago. Typically I would have been out by now. The only night I need rest the most and it just won’t come.

Tomorrow I’m preaching about Heaven. I’m certainly looking forward to going one day. No more pain, no more sorrow, and no more struggles. It really is hard to imagine such a place when all you’ve ever seen is this imperfect world. But thanks be to God, by grace through faith in Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection I’m Heaven bound.

All I’m trying to do in this life is seek to honor God in every way possible. I long to hear my master say “well done thy good and faithful servant. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it. It’s not all about my feelings, but keeping the faith. Faith that if you do what’s right you can’t go wrong. God will reward every believer that stays faithful even when it hurts.

“God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
(James 1:12)
