Yesterday afternoon Lori and were on a walk and for some reason the words “fight the good fight” came to mind. Not sure why they would pop into my head but they were there. And while I could not recall the larger context at that time, I did remember to look them up this morning.
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
— 1 Timothy 6:12
Wow! Okay! Now I’m being flooded with thoughts of “fights” friends have shared recently. Our lives are full of struggles against our sinful nature, with battles against illnesses of all types and sizes, challenges in relationships with friends or families…to name just a few. Struggle. Struggle. Struggle. It can be seemingly endless and overwhelming.
Then the words from Paul to Timothy pop into my head again. And not just those words but the simple confidence that He is with me. With you. With all those who call on Him as their Lord and Savior.
And then the words BE OF GOOD FAITH. Which I then Googled (thinking maybe they were from scripture) and found this song on YouTube…OH MY GOODNESS. I encourage you to listen to the words and be encouraged. Be of good faith.
So, this morning I am reminded again in God’s miracle. It obviously has been a while since I’ve written. January it looks like. Yet in my wondering, my questioning, God led me to a beautiful song I would not have otherwise found. Our God is an awesome God.
