I know for myself when I have those moments I would rather just lay on the couch and pull the blanket up over my head. And I might do that for a short time. But I have come to realize that when I “feel” forgotten or alone… that is definitely a time to do the opposite of what I am feeling.
My encouragement to you today is that you are not ever forgotten… you are never alone! As a child of God, you know He is always with you… even when you don’t feel like it. All the things you have done for the Lord will always be remembered... as a "warrior" you may end up hurt and distraught... but anything done in faith and love will be honored by God... don't let life make you feel insignificant or discouraged. God remembers the good done in His name.
“God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.” Hebrews 6:10-12
And you know one of the best ways to not feel forgotten is to take your eyes off yourself and put your eyes back on God. He has given each one of us so many opportunities to serve Him and reach out to those in need. And this seems like a great day to start! So my challenge is for each one of you to pick up your sword and get ready to slice through the feelings that are bringing you down!
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
Let the high praises of God be in your mouth, and a two-edged sword in your hand. (Psalms 149:6)
Rejoicing in Truth!
