Day Twenty Three
Perseverance for Your Soul
2 Chronicles 15:7 But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
When you began, you never envisioned yourself crawling across the finish line. Today you’d be delighted to reach completion at all. These days are long; the goal still out of reach.
Stalled one, come reap perseverance for your soul.
Today I Pray for You:
· To remain in the One who will carry you to completion.
· To stretch out your hand not toward your goals but to the One who makes reaching them possible.
Today You Pray:
Unchanging God, You do not grow weary. You never tire of me. Instead You delight in my presence. Today I won’t crawl closer to the finish line, I will crawl into Your lap. I will abide in You and allow You to recharge the cavern of my soul.
My need for You is gaping. Without You I cannot continue. Like a prize fighter against the ropes, I realize alone I’m down for the count. But in You is the perseverance my soul thirsts. Together we’ll dance around the ring until the final bell rings.
