Tired of it all.

I know you feel like quitting, or maybe even just easing off the gas a bit more. We all reach a place where we ask ourselves, “is it all worth it?” Don’t give up.  Don’t quit.  Don’t stop being a light in the dark places…  You may be the only light someone has.
Some of you know that my wife Hannah and I, earlier this year, started leading a young adult ministry called NEXT.  I also am the worship pastor of a church in Elkmont called Friendship North, and Hannah is the children’s director there.  She is also the Assistant Director of the Friendship Learning Center, currently also in school working on her Associates in Early Childhood Development.
Her and I both have been so blessed by the people we have met since we have been back these last couple years.  We’ve had people give us words of encouragment that you know God was the center of. He had a plan all along for us.
Just think, if we had of given up during our years in the Carolinas on doing good, and planting seeds, then we more than likely would have never said yes to coming back to Alabama and being surrounded by this harvest of goodness the Lord has set before us. We always knew there was more but never really knew what it was… When you least expect it, God throws a desire into your heart and if you trust Him, HE will start putting the pieces together for you.
So, please don’t quit loving, serving, inspiring, and motivating…
You’ll see your harvest.
Just don’t quit.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. [Galatians 6:9]
