Life can sure beat us up sometimes. We can get a little battle-weary.
Someone once said that we are always in the midst of a battle, heading out of a battle, or heading into one. Phew! That’s not a lot of time outside of the fire!
It’s easy to see why we lose sight of who we are. It’s easy to see why at times, we feel a little lost.
We just need to be reminded why we are here. Why we are in a fight in the first place.
We need to be reminded who we are to God. How deeply He loves and values us.
We need to be reminded how it feels to have hope and vision. How it feels to see God at work in our lives or the lives of those around us.
Sometimes that reminding comes straight from the Lord. But sometimes, it needs to come from us. We are here to help one another. Our words, our encouragement, support, and love go along way in the life of someone who feels beat up and battle-weary.
Because we all forget at times. We all forget that we are God’s beloved. And that puts us at great risk.
If you are bruised, battered, and feeling weak from a battle in your life today – be reminded. Be reminded that God loves you. He knows how you feel. He has not left your side even though you may feel so very alone. He’s right there – working.
And be reminded why you love Him so.
