This could not have come at a better time, and pastor Tim Conway is SO encouraging….I pray it ministers to your soul as it did to mine…weary, tired of the daily muck and trudge and wickedness, and tired of me in the middle of it all. I don’t know about you, but I sure don’t want to be wanting the Lord to return more for being able to get away from the mess than for being with HIM. Rest your drooping arms…then raise them. God Himself encourages us to keep on going, and to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness. And after that…really, what else matters?~AGM†

For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.– Hebrews 12:11-14
