Remember when there were arcades in malls? Or maybe you’ve recently been to Dave and Busters? Playing all the fun games like skeeball, Crusin’ the USA, and dance dance revolution. Every once in a while I even played Whack a Mole. Constantly hitting those moles to make them go back down into their holes. Over and over and over and over and over. By the time I finally got one “under control” another would pop up….can I say over and over and over again?
I keep hitting. They keep coming up. That’s when I get tired. I grow weary. I feel overwhelmed. I focus on how I’m failing instead of how far I’ve come. I wonder if I can keep this up. I try to tackle sin. I try to buckle down and keep pressing on toward the goal. And right there, in the midst of all my striving His gentle whisper reminds me…
So, at the end of the day, I rest in that…being obedient to the Holy Spirit so that He can do a work in my heart and transform me to be more like Him. He gets ALL the glory. I just need to lean into Him and find that His yoke is easy.
How are you doing today? Feeling weary? I would love to pray for you or just hear from you.
