Thought for the Day: Yesterday, the Cypress Creek Christian Church Leadership Team met for a Virtual Retreat. It was very different from previous years, but it was good to see folks on Zoom. An amazing group of people! During the meeting, I planned to reference these words from Galatians, but like so often happens I got stuck on something else. I am so easily distracted these days, yet my intention was to acknowledge the weariness that I am feeling and most everyone else is feeling. We are weary of many aspects of life right now, yet we must continue doing what is right. Not to sound too dramatic, but Jesus didn’t get through the arrest and the beatings and say, “Never mind, I’m out of here.” He must have been weary, yet his faithfulness to the calling of love remained unfazed. We are not being asked to go to the cross, but we are being invited to wear masks, to be overly cautious about gathering in groups and to continue in the belief that God is working in this moment. We need to do what is right, and not what feels good or what our weariness wants us to do. We might be weary, but it does not mean we are weary in the specific area of doing what is right.
Prayer: We do not face this moment or any moment alone. You are forever present, Lord God, and you provide us spiritual fortitude even when we are feeling a bit weary. Continue to inspire within us a passion to do what is right. Amen.
