“Fight the good fight of faith.” – 1 Timothy 6:12
Life can be brutal and tough. It can be challenging and exhausting. It can seem like it’s just one thing after another – like you can never catch a break. I’ve been there and I can relate. It can be a struggle to see God in those moments but I promise He is there. If you’re not going currently going through a tough season, the odds are someone close to you is. It’s important to remember that we all need a helping hand at some point.
You don’t forget how people make you feel. When you’re down or struggling, sometimes all it takes is a person’s kind action to turn your day around. Sometimes God puts a person in our life at just the right moment to give you a bit more encouragement to get you through the day.
I can remember one of my darkest seasons, a text from a friend at the right time turned my day around. It brought me from tears to laughter. Sometimes the attitude change came from a complete stranger. I remember being impatient and frustrated at the store because I still had a million things on my to do list. The cashier’s great attitude turned mine around. I found myself laughing and just being in the minute.
We don’t need to go 1000 miles a minute. Some things aren’t going to get done when or the way you want them. It’s not the end of the world. Things are going to go wrong and we need each other. Sometimes you’re the one who needs the helping hand and sometimes you’re the one who needs to lend a hand. It can be with your time, your money, your energy, your advice or just being a shoulder to lean on. In a time where hatred, intolerance and apathy is running rampant, be the person Christ has called us to be. Sometimes fighting the good fight is done in seemingly small ways.
Let me know how we can help you keep fighting the good fight. As always, we love hearing from you. ❤
