the fight of better…

Even when you know how to do better… it’s just a fight…

I understand why people quit on the road to better… whether it’s better health… better habits… better relationships…

This better at the shop has been frustrating…

Ready to give in yesterday… the shop sister says… Remember… faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see…

Well I certainly wasn’t seeing anything but new problems… on the road to better…

I was ready to be content with just limping along…

But today… a breakthrough…! Things actually worked… BETTER!!!

What a joy… and I know it’s worth it…

I’ve walked through striving for better in my spiritual walk… fighting the fight of temptation… the temptation to quit… to be OK with the status quo… because it just feels like there’s too much to fight…

So let me encourage you today…

Fight…! Fight…! Fight…! for better… because it will come… and it is worth the effort…

Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have declared so well before many witnesses. And I charge you before God, who gives life to all, and before Christ Jesus, who gave a good testimony before Pontius Pilate, that you obey this command without wavering. Then no one can find fault with you from now until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.

1Timothy 6:12-14 NLT

I charge you… fight the fight of better…
