Do you ever feel like the day’s activities are stacking up so high they become walls around you? It reminded me of the children’s song about Joshua:
“Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho. Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, and the walls came tumbling down.”
Some days I feel like I’m fighting a battle with everyday life: Household chores, paying the bills, running errands, and, “Honey, I need my volleyball shorts…” “Mom, I’m hungry…” (“What? Again? You just got done eating!”) And I wonder, “Is this stuff ever going to end?”
But then I hear, “Thanks for taking care of us, honey,” and “Mom, I love you,” and those walls that hide the benefits of what I do come tumbling down and everything comes into perspective.
Another reminder, a kiss from the Lord to “…not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” (Galations 6:9)
