My challenge is not to focus on how hard the work will be or even what will happen if/when I finish. I need to focus on seeking God who promises to show up as I work and trust Him to multiply my efforts. Like the priests in Joshua’s day (Joshua 3:13), I have to take the first step into the water before it will part. Miracles happen when my feet are wet and I’m trusting my God.
Dear Lord, help me to not be afraid or discouraged by the bigness of a task at hand. I know that You will not fail or forsake me. And help me to remember that usually the joy is in the journey and not just in the end. Amen.
