“Slowly, but Surely”

“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Gal 6:9 NLT

At times I get impatient with myself in my walk with Christ. I don’t think I’m changing or transforming fast enough. It seems I just can’t get it right or more like get it together! I’ll do well for a while (a few months), then my old ways of doing things come lurking and I fall short again usually with the same old things (my attitude and lack of self-control to name a few). The struggle has been real these past few months, the struggle within that is. (Seriously) The inward battle amongst my spiritual man and flesh (self) has gotten REAL and it’s affecting me in every area of my life. My feelings and emotions have been all over the place -- I’m emotionally and mentally drained! Thoughts of suicide, wanting to give up on the things God told me to do, and just wanting to stay locked up at home in the bed all day. (Don’t judge me… I’m keeping it 100!) The lifestyle of a Christian is not easy, especially when you continue to walk away from what God has shown you about yourself and make excuses. Like it says in James 1:22-24, “But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like.” The time is out for me (and you if it applies) making excuses for myself and walking away from what HE’s shown me. I’m taking a good look at myself, removing the mask, the phony smile, no more excuses, or feeling sorry for myself. It’s time to woman up and stop talking about it and be about it, no matter how long it will take for me to get it right… I do believe slowly but, surely with the LORD as my help I’ll get it together!

  1. YES YES YES!!! We are all a work in progress! Anything worth having is never easy. Thank God we have each other to edify one another in Christ!!! Thank you for being bold, & honest! To God be the glory!

  2. This sure was timely. I felt as if I wrote this cuz I am in the same position. I don't have thoughts of suicide but I've felt like giving up on the things of God because this war in my soul has gotten SERIOUS. However I am learning to take it a day at a time, like yourself I am learning to man up and wait on the Lord because when we do He will make us SOAR (Isiah 40:31)and even better because Christ is WORTH it! God bless you!

    1. Dale, exactly one day at a time and Christ is most def worth it!! I appreciate you taking the time out to read and comment! I'm sooo very glad it blessed you! Keep pushing bro!
