God, teach me the lessons for living so I can stay the course. (Psalm 119:33-40 MSG)
Lord, I am weary. I ache. This journey is too much. I don’t think I can keep going.
God said, “My presence will go with you. I’ll see the journey to the end.” (Exodus 33:14 MSG)
What does the end of this journey look like? I just wish I knew what will happen…can you just give me an idea?
Take the old prophets as your mentors. They put up with anything, went through everything, and never once quit, all the time honoring God. What a gift life is to those who stay the course! You’ve heard, of course, of Job’s staying power, and you know how God brought it all together for him at the end. That’s because God cares, cares right down to the last detail. (James 5:10-11 MSG)
I trust you Lord. I’ve seen you show up for me in mighty ways. I have felt your comfort, your shield and your love. Please help me to be faithful. Help me to hear you and to be obedient. Help me to stay the course.
Just make sure you stay alert. Keep close watch over yourselves. Don’t forget anything of what you’ve seen. Don’t let your heart wander off. Stay vigilant as long as you live. Teach what you’ve seen and heard to your children and grandchildren. (Deuteronomy 4:9 MSG)
Yes, Lord! Help me to stay alert and to stay vigilant. Help me to follow you and to have my heart beat to your rhythm, and my feet walk in your stride. Let my mouth shape your words, my ears hear your whispers and my eyes see your goodness. Let my journey make a difference. Let it matter. Use it for your kingdom and for your glory.
Friend, are you weary? Do you feel like giving up? Is your journey too much? Don’t give up!
Stay the course.
Stay with God.
I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness in the exuberant earth. Stay with God! Take heart. Don’t quit. I’ll say it again: Stay with God. Psalm 27:13-14 (MSG)
Stay with God.
