I spent some time today in my somewhat neglected private journal; this picture matches the mood of the entry rather well:
That's pretty much what being a Sojourner feels like most of the time; I'm sure there are those of you who can relate. It's a struggle, and many don't make it. And sometimes I'm less than convinced that it's worth the strain.
However, don't forget who gave that drive - and corresponding pluck - to us in the first place. God always backs His projects with promises. (Philippians 1:6) Romans 8 says that nothing can hold up or hurt the work of God in a yielded life.
