Have you ever wondered how to pray when life is noisy? Early on in my prayer journey, I felt that prayer could only take place in quiet environments. I felt that if I went to the same room in my home daily and committed to a time of prayer that I would be uninterrupted.
Endurance is challenging, especially when you are faced with adversity. Your natural reaction is to quit or to hide, but instead God wants us to stand. Standing is an act of faith and a struggle of the will. We are encouraged in Scripture to stand and see the salvation of the Lord. As exciting as this Scripture might be, in the middle of life’s moments, this is the last thing you want to do.
Have you been wondering why you were born during this time? With news of wars, rumors of war, human intolerance, social unrest and disquiet all around us it makes us think. You might even question, “What am I still doing here. Come get me God!”
For the past month, I have been learning to endure in personal fitness. A long time ago, I made exercise a priority twice a day. I would complete 15 to 20 minutes of cardio and finish the workout with weight training. Needless to say, life happened.
After battling fatigue, frustration, and overwhelming thoughts to give up, I confronted the truth. Busyness is not fruitful; it produces a cycle of undone tasks that do not have an end result.
