I read your emails with a heavy heart. A break-in at a “safe” house. Donors falling through. No money for food. Girls that want to go back.
I hear it in your voices even though you’re a world away.
You are weary.
The road you’re on is uphill all the way. It’s often lonely, too. After all, you can’t change the world if you’re living just like it.
Setbacks make you wonder if all of this is worth it. This giving of everything you have, this giving of yourselves.
I know how it feels to wonder if all your work is worthless. Moms grow weary, too.
We see the same struggles day after day, fight the same battles tomorrow that we thought we won today.
It’s easy to want to hide in a closet with a cup of coffee and hope they’ll sort it out themselves.
But we can’t give up.
“Because at the proper time we WILL reap a harvest.”
I believe it. The harvest will come. In my life and yours.
“So let us NOT grow weary…”
Run to the one who gives strength. Let him renew you as you hope in him. Mount high on the wings he gives you. Do not faint as you face the future.
Trust the God who gave you this task to provide all you need to do it.
“Let us not grow weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
