But in the midst of life, how easy is it to be moved? I know that every morning I pray for God to protect me with His armor. But some days are harder than others. I start out strong and then one thing after another hits and I fall.
Other the past few weeks, I have had an especially harder time staying positive. And I know it’s totally warfare. We have a lot going on in our family. Gregory is going to Haiti in June, baby #2 is coming in May, Finn is 2 1/2 (very important time for shaping him and important that G and I stay on the same page on discipline), and G and I both have new things happening at work. Bottom line, the enemy wants to steal our joy.
So how do we live this out? I think the second part of the verse tells us – always work enthusiastically for the Lord. No matter what – we just keep working, keep praying, keep our eyes on Him. Because nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.
