journey of faith: day four.

inspiration: Paul's sufferings.

day four:
it's a rainy Sunday morning here at home. i've only been up for about thirty minutes or so, but i've already felt the effects of spiritual attack. the first few days of my spiritual-refocus have gone fairly well. granted, there have been moments of uneasiness, but nothing like today.

i'm so blessed to have so many brothers and sisters in Christ who love and support me in my walk with Christ. and for that, i am eternally grateful. but i feel like i often forget about that and turn inwardly to myself, which is probably no doubt why i feel like i do now: discouraged, mopey, "blahhhh" (for lack of a better word ;)).

goal: i will not complain. i will boast in chains for the name of Christ.

oh, boy. i've typed it. so it must be done.
today is going to be a true test of patience and obedience. lol.

Philippians 2:14-16: "Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life -- in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing."

Philippians 3:12-14: "Not that I have already obtained all this or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
