It Is Worth It


She follows GOD

She thinks of others first. She does what is right

&

She gets the short of the end of the stick

&

She wonders~

IS IT WORTH IT?

Is it worth it to hang in there when I am hanging by a thread?

Is it worth it to watch those who aren't doing what is right,

appearing to be winning in this life?

Is it worth it to do this

CHRISTIAN THING~

To

"TRUST IN THE LORD with all of your heart "(Proverbs 3:5)

To

"DENY himself &take up his cross and follow ME" (Matthew 16:24)

To

"Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the LORD" (1 Corinthians 15:58).

Have you ever been there?

Oh I have & I am sure I will be again,

because as long as we are breathing life hits us at all angles,

& it doesn't matter how "good" you are or "bad" you are.

As I just heard from another who walks the talk & talks the walk,

yet it appears she is losing.

My heart goes out to her & I know that

she will come out on top

& that

GOD has a greater plan that HE is working in the midst of the ugliness

& that JESUS is the only way.

I know that she knows it too.

So how do you keep walking forward when your life appears to be falling apart?

Do you look up to

JESUS

& see

HIM looking into your eyes

as

HE tells you that HE understands what you are going through

& that you are actually called

BLESSED

when you go through these things

because

"BLESSED [happy, spiritually prosperous, favored by God] is the man who is steadfast under trial & perseveres when tempted; for when he has passed the test & been approved, he will receive the [victor’s] crown of life which the LORD has promised to those who love HIM" (James 1:12)

Oh BLESSED YOU & BLESSED ME

we are all in this together

with the One

who has so much more for us than we can ever imagine.

And YES

IT IS WORTH IT~

this

CHRISTIAN THING~

so let's do it together

because it is forever~

"I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of GOD IN CHRIST JESUS. All of us who are mature [pursuing spiritual perfection] should have this attitude. And if in any respect you have a different attitude, that too GOD will make clear to you.

Only let us stay true to what we have already attained" (Philippians 3:14-16 AMP)
