Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
How many of you are growing weary right now? A delay does not mean a denial with God. The Holy Bible reminds us in Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. . . .”
All wisdom comes from the Lord (Proverbs 2:6), and He knows the ideal timing to perfect everything that concern us (Psalm 138:8). This is according to His plan and timing for our lives. Some of us may have forgotten about the times they prayed for a husband, wife, family time, children, to have the ability to move out on their own (have their own space alone), etc. Now due to the nature of events going around the world today, we have an abundance of family time, that spouse is home, you’re in your own space, and I wonder how many have grown weary in answers to these prayers alone.
Are you starting to complain about the spouse or children you prayed for because everyone is confined under one roof, at the same time, during a complete 24-hour period? Let us not forget this is what we cried out to God for on more than one occasion. Now some may say, not like this or but he/she is doing this or they are getting on my nerves, and my answer to these remarks are: Take it to God in prayer. If not with the same tenacity you had when praying for the blessing. God is faithful and He will give us the grace to live a godly life. He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13). This also works with you in your home. 🙂
For those who are still waiting for their breakthrough, get ready. Position yourself for the blessing while you are waiting and remain encouraged. God loves you. Psalm 84:11 For the Lord is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Friends, this blog post is not written to condemn anyone. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). I understand this a tough time for a lot of families across the world. We are not alone for those who are in Christ; therefore, this is a message for all of us to give thanks in all circumstances to God (1 Thessalonians 5:18). In fact, writing this blog post has been a blessing and a reminder for me as well. Thank our heavenly Father for His Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
If you are not saved, please visit my Salvation Prayer page. The promises I write about in this blog site can be for you too by accepting our heavenly Father’s free gift of salvation today. His Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has already paid the price for us. The Lamb of God. Welcome Him into your heart today.
Love you all in Christ,
Ayesha L. Shoulders

If I stop praying for someone, stop sowing or if I give up things will go very wrong. For me, in order not to grow weary I have to check my motivations. Is it because I want recognition? Or is it because I truly want to be used by God and see His glory be revealed though my life? If I am motivated by people affirming me, then I will never be satisfied. After all, in the community of Believers, is made up of imperfect people. They have proclivities, idiosyncrasies and flaws just like I do and don’t always walk in the Spirit. If my value is always being determined by them, then I am going to always be disappointed. Being content with who I am in God is my heart’s desire.

Amen! The world cannot give us what it does not have. We will always be disappointed if our focus is on what man thinks. So true and well-said. My desire is to please God and not man.
