Well, I promised to write a devotion a day, no matter how I felt, starting in April 2015. It’s no surprise that my lofty idea quickly lost momentum, and I only posted two daily devotionals. Ah, shucks.
I am notorious for starting projects without ever finishing them. I joke that I have ADD, mostly because I’m serious. It’s really difficult for me to keep focused on anything in life.
So, instead of promising specific dates and times, I wanted to pick up where I left off. I’m not sure how many daily devotionals I’ll write up, but here’s Day 3 for you.
Day 3 Devotional: Don’t Quit
Wednesday, September 21st
Such a simple phrase, yet holds so much power.
Whether you’re in a job that is hard to wake up for, you’re in losing a battle to a nasty illness, or you’re knee deep in an addiction, I pray that you don’t give up.
You may take twenty steps forward, just to take one huge, giant leap backwards. But please, don’t quit.
I pray now for encouragement.
Holy Spirit, you are light. You are newness. You are comfort and peace. I pray that our eyes would be opened wide to see MORE of you today, and less of our failure. May your presence and peace engulf us in a warm embrace. May we feel connected to your fruit of peace, patience, kindness and endurance. Help us to know, we are SAFE to endure this day. This season of life. Help us to stand firm in faith, and in the present moment. And give us courage to keep going, to just get through this day. With your power and your holy help.
