You may feel like you are going one step forward, and two steps back…
Super hard…. when the annoyingness of your own self keeps poking you in the chest…
“One day Jesus told His disciples a story to illustrate their need for constant prayer and to show the that they must never give up!
“There was a judge in a certain city,” he said, “who was a godless man with a great contempt for everyone.
A widow of that city came to him repeatedly, appealing for justice against someone who had harmed her.
The judge ignored her a a while, but eventually she wore him out.
“I fear neither God nor man,’ he said to himself, but this woman is driving me crazy, I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!”
Then the Lord said, “Learn a lesson from this evil judge. Even he rendered a just decision in the end, so don’t yo think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who plead with Him day and night?
I tell you, He will grant justice to them quickly!
But when I the son of man, return, how many will I find who have faith?”
She wore him out! That made me laugh out loud…
I feel like I can so relate to that woman :)
Don’t let “feelings” like you are annoying God, or annoying even your own self, stop you from constant prayer.
I am so encouraged that Jesus took the time to record this story…
He is for us…
He knows our weakness, and meets us right where we are.
Keep going :)
We might even get a cookie!!! Hahaha
Live in Love,
