  1. Spiritual stamina = more Jesus in me. What more motivation than that do I need to keep going & keep checking my spiritual biceps? I love your boy’s reaction. Thanks for sharing! Gonna go keeping going thru a mountain on my desk that can be rather mundane. Your encouragement was well timed!

  2. When I feel I’m in a valley low and stuck in the middle, I try to remember how low Jesus was on the Saturday between death and resurrection. What a lesson in waiting.

  3. Stacy,

    We’ve all been in valleys. Mine lasted for over 12 years. God had me care for my aging parents & their medical/psych issues. Some days were good & others were grueling. The end result was huge growth in my faith, trust & spiritual muscles. Now when trials come-like pandemic-I don’t worry. Deep down I know God is in control. God has each of us on a journey. If we obey & walk the path He has laid out for us our spiritual stamina will increase. As a bonus we may find pure joy & happiness.

    Blessings 🙂

    • Beth, this is such wisdom. God deepens us in the valleys – and if we keep our hearts soft, we might even find joy! Thanks so much for connecting today!
