Do the work: Now is not forever

Having hope that now is not forever is a good thing. Situations change, we move on, and difficulties cease to be the same. New difficulties come along and we have to be ready to face them, by the Grace of God and with full trust that it is not I who lives but Christ who lives in me.

So, forget yourself and do the work. Stop thinking about what is and isn’t. Thank God for everything including the dark moments and the hopelessness. He moves in you all the time, especially when you are down, but you need to be ready to get up and do the work.

We cannot experience the sweetness of Christ and receive the purification that we need unless we get up and do the work – even when the world is crashing down on you, and especially when you are a 100% sure you cannot do the work by your own physical and mental strength.

“But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

2 Timothy 4:5
