How often do you say “no” to things that would interfere with your goals?
I am older now, and I can think of times I set some things aside, or postponed a project, in order to be able to serve or achieve in a more important way. I was able to help with my mother’s care for several years, and she would ask if I was writing. And I was not writing as much then. Far less than now. But I believe my writing is better now for that time. And I could not have imagined blogs back then, but sometimes I read verses in the Bible that seemed to promise my work would grow.
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
