Be Not Weary...


2 Thessalonians 3:13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.


"May I never grow so weary with fighting this daily battle that my sword falls from my hand. May I never become like so many around me--complacent, content to dabble in the mud at the foot of the holy mount, instead of pressing step by step to the summit. May I instead be like a strong, thriving tree, pointing others to heaven. Like the moon, brilliantly reflecting the sun of my Saviour's righteousness. May I be a warrior, valiantly struggling against the enemies of the truth. May I be a lamb, meekly accepting instruction and enduring persecution and suffering, with the knowledge that I am ever in The Good Shepherd's hands. May I live passionately, fervently, in sweet communion with my King, not caring for the opinion of others. May I live so victoriously that those around me will glorify God because of my life. May I pour out my time, my energy, my talents, my desires, my very life at the feet of Christ, allowing Him to use them as He will. May my heart never be wandering or distracted, but instead fixed solely on performing the will of The One who redeemed me. May it never be said of me or any other true follower of Jesus, that I became weary in well doing."

  3. Thank you so much for this post. It was such a blessing to read the quote that you put up. When I was doing my Bible reading this morning, I read 2 Thessalonians 3:13 and Galatians 6:9. I was reminded of the blessing + condition that is written in Galatians 6:9. I also remembered Isaiah 40:31 where it gives all of the blessing and encouragement we will receive if we wait upon the Lord. Thank you for reminding me of these verses of blessing and promise.
    I would also like to say thank you for the post "Adding, Growing, Thriving" that you put up recently. That passage of Scripture I have been thinking about lately. I also had the same thinking as you did. The way your dad explained it helps me now to easily apply those verses to my life. Thank you for sharing that with all of us.

    1. Those are such good verses, I agree Shawn!! And I'm glad that I'm not the only one that was thinking a bit incorrectly on the meaning of the verses in 2 Peter...that does make me feel a bit better. ;) But anyhow, that message was a blessing to me, and I am so thankful that it was to you as well! Have a great day. :)
