Looking back, the project, started with purpose and energy and a sense that we’re going to get this done.
The end was somewhat the same, the last big push to finish. The product is done, the service provided, energy surges as the finish line is in sight and finally crossed.
But in-between there were times when things slowed down, energy had been expended but nothing, it seemed, to show for it. What needed to come next? Where did those unexpected issues come from? The work load increased but the deadline remained the same. Fatigue. Mind wants to drift.
Father, in those in-between times when the energy and excitement of a fresh start is behind us and we are in the middle of the work and accomplishing what we have started can seem so much farther away than we had first thought… we stop…..
We withdraw from the moment for a moment, or two or three and seek communion with You, seek to speak only to You, to praise You, to remind ourselves and confess to You that we are Your children, that You love us, that we walk together and for that we are so grateful.
We remind ourselves that all projects are, all living is for, the purpose of praising and glorifying You, every aspect, every activity, every relationship, an opportunity and a means to give You honor before all, to lift You up and put You first.
Father, revive us. Send us back into the work rested and renewed with the strength and will to continue to the finish…please Abba.
And may all we think and say and do, please You, Father.
In Yeshua’s name we pray.
