"If we desire to retain our zeal for those for whom we are praying, and if their needs and distress are to move us to intercede for them daily, we will find that this does not take place without striving and wrestling on our part." - O. Hallesby
Striving and wrestling...that was what yesterday was full of...I was striving to get the house picked back up and somewhat clean (I had been slacking - there are days of slothfulness...) I was wrestling (not physically but it might as well had been) with the internet and computer to get the daily bible reading to load. Satan was doing his best to knock me down and I almost gave up and skipped posting it. BUT I knew that I had to post it for God's words would speak to someone.
I strive to NOT keep my MOM from doing as much as she could but I wrestle with letting her do much because of her health. I strive to smile while I wrestle with pain. I strive to continue even when I wrestle with failure.
I pray that God's commandments continue to strive in your heart and soul even when you wrestle with your daily struggles.
Much love to you all!
