Today I feel like calling for a desperate need of prayer. I don’t really need it, but I want to be delivered from this mess I’m in. It’s nothing special—I’ve just been flagging all the words so I can make the index when I finish my new book. I’ve been working on it for a couple of weeks now [or maybe forever].
Patient, long-suffering overcomer: that’s me
Nope! That’s me by faith—eventually—by the grace of God. People forget that a large part of our Christian walk has to do with persistence. This is when your faith is tried by fire.
When it’s really bad, taking a stand is relatively easy. When things are going really well, maintaining your faith is very difficult. But the real fight, day by day in the trenches is simply doing what must be done simply because it must be done to enable you to reach the goal they Lord has given you.
Ah well, back to indexing…
