Should we substitute eternal joy for temporary happiness? Should we cast all hope aside because the sun has set and we have forgotten it’s light? Should we surrender all that is good for what is easy, because we have fallen one too many times?
Nay, I say carry on. Fight and know that we are going to fall many times in the struggle for that wonderful promise of completion in Christ. We will feel as though we are being drained of everything. But it is not the end of everything when we have lost everything; it is the beginning of Him who is in us. When we have surrendered ourselves, we become accepting of Christ.
Continue on Christian, leave what the world calls good and find what Heaven calls blessed. There are far greater things ahead of us, my friends; keep looking forward.
