Are you feeling tired and empty? Is it really worth all the pain, suffering and sacrifice?
Stop for a moment and remember what you are fighting for. Ask yourself, “Does my struggle have value?” Things usually don’t turn out exactly how you like, but your effort counts. Your contribution is part of God’s larger plan to build his Kingdom. You may not see the fruits right away, but the Lord is faithful and will deliver.
Return to the mercy of God. Double down on his promises. You won’t be disappointed. Your walk with Jesus requires a deeper trust. This is how God forms your spiritual growth and character. Remember what the Lord has done for you, and trust in his promises for the future.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
