    From the Word…

    Down? Tired? Unappreciated? Overwhelmed? Discouraged? Wondering if it is all worth it? If so, or if you know someone who is, take a moment to read this verse slowly and prayerfully…

    Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58

    Remember, we will not actually see the full result of our labor until the day we talk it all over with the One who loves us and works through us for His glory! Hang in there, it will be worth it!
