Patience & Faith-Muscles

“Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9

On this Advent Saturday where we are half way to Christmas (it’s two weeks from today, in case you haven’t noticed?) We’re still in waiting mode, which is not easy, as stated, for certain impatient redheads.

The thing is there are all kinds of things we can be waiting for, not just Christmas. Often we work (& work & work & work) to see things change – and they don’t. But faith says we keep trying…

 Waiting seems to be a kind of acted-out prayer that is required more often than I could understand until I saw what remarkable faith-muscles this act develops.” Catherine Marshall

Here’s to not losing heart with extra developed faith-muscles!

grace, peace & faith

    Loved the quote, Virginia! Solid inspiration to hang in there and lean toward ‘good’.
