More about striving

It's been a while since I confessed to a place-holder post, but this is one.

It's deadline, and I'm turning to some words I saved for such a time as this. These are more thoughts about striving, which I collected shortly after the recent blog post.

March 8 Bible Gateway, reflecting on Moses (after reading Exodus 6:6-12):

Sometimes a clear message from God is followed by a time when nothing seems to change. During that time, apparent setbacks may turn people away from wanting to hear more about God. If you are a leader, don’t give up. Keep bringing people God’s message as Moses did. If you are a follower, strive to be patient. God always fulfills his promises.

March 8 Jesus Calling:

Save your best striving for seeking My Face. I am constantly communicating with you. To find Me and hear My voice, you must seek Me above all else.

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.

—1 Chronicles 16:11

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

—Matthew 6:33
