Worth the Fight


I have been brought out of darkness and into the light.  Am I living in purposeful acknowledgement of the latter, or dwelling on the former? 

Rejoice always, pray without
Give thanks in all circumstances;
For this is the will of
God in Christ Jesus for
1 Thess 5:16-18 

This is the lifestyle I’ve been called to.

Why is it sometimes so easy to forget how much God loves me?
Yes, being in love with Jesus is hard sometimes. It’s hard because I don’t always feel his Spirit right on me.  But minute by minute, I WILL SEEK GOD. And even if I’m struggling to see him through veils I’ve set up, he is pleased that I think he’s worth the fight.  And I will keep fighting, and he will not turn a blind eye to my striving.
