Battle · Time

it’s not time…

The thought comes to mind… regarding His call… Maybe… it’s time to back off of this one… It’s getting hard…

And within moments of this thought… I’m talking not ten minutes… I receive an encouragement in the exact thing I’m thinking about backing off of…

After a thanks given… I pick up a book… reading where I left off…

It sounds like a lot of work, but growth takes work. Salvation is free, but maturity comes with a price.

—Gary L. Thomas, Seeking the Face of God

It’s as if He’s speaking directly to my heart… It’s not time to back off… I know it’s hard… It’s time to grow to new levels…

I’m willing…  but Oh… my flesh… it’s tired…

 The spirit indeed is willing,
but the flesh is weak.
Matthew 26:41 ESV
And the verse from yesterday haunts… in its entirety… the one regarding eternal life
Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life
to which you were called and about which you made the good
confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1Timothy 6:12 ESV
So Yes… here I sit… 
pressing on…
fighting…
taking hold…
trusting…
hearing Him say… It’s not time…
Amen…
