Keep Pressing On
We often think of how wonderful it would be in life if there were no problems, no burdens, no difficulties or no trials to ever come our way.  But the Lord knows that if we never had any of those things that we would, no doubt, become careless and tend to pray much less than we do now and even forget to depend on Him as we ought to.  So He sends these things our way and they press us towards Him, causing us to lean on His strength and rely on His wisdom day by day.  Oh, I am like most of you, thinking of how great it would be to not have to deal with those things, but for now we do.  We press on, realizing that there will come a day, when we'll lay aside the battles, burdens and sorrows of this life and exchange it all for Heaven's wonders.  I don't have a clue when that great day will come, but until then I press on.  Living each day as though it might be the day He calls us home from a world of trouble and strife.  And if it doesn't happen today?  I keep pressing on until the day He comes.  You may be hurting this morning.  You may be worried today.  You may be burdened over something in your family.  Don't let whatever you're facing today stop you from pressing on.  He will give you strength for today and one day, we'll cross the last hill, we'll round the last curve, we'll carry the last burden and we'll be home.  Until then just keep pressing on.
