Sony’s Thoughts: Be Faithful

“Well, I’m tired and so weary but I must go along ’til the Lord comes and calls me away.”

How often do you feel like that, especially after a long day of work when your body aches and your mind is tired? I must admit that this song comes to mind a lot for me. At the same time, as I begin to say “Even so, come, Lord Jesus,” I’m reminded of the tasks God has given me on this earth. He is not finished with me, so the weariness I feel is simply a ploy to get my focus off of the prize that awaits right across the finish line.

If I desire to hear the words, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant,” I need to do the job He’s given me to do well. His grace is sufficient, and it really is in my weakness that He is made strong. Maybe I can’t see how I’ll get through the next day or week or month, but He does, and that’s really all that matters.
