It's Day 36 of the 36-day challenge, y'all! 😀
Yet there is still one more day left in the year. 🤨
I could say that Math is not really my strong point to save face, but I like Math, so that'd be untrue.
So how come tomorrow is going to be the 37th day in a 36-day challenge that was supposed to last till the end of 2017?
Umm...I simply miscounted. 😅
I kinda already figured out that I miscounted a few days into the challenge, but I didn't re-count or attempt to backtrack to rename the challenge.
You know, I do that sometimes (okay fine...a lot of times): I hide from a problem or mistake hoping it'd disappear, or become a non-issue. If the situation persists, instead of praying and working it away, I hide behind "all things work together."*
Don't get me wrong. All things do work together...
I have been using it as a crutch though, instead of a promise of hope like the Lord meant it.
Maybe you do the same. Maybe you don't.
The lesson the Lord is teaching me as I enter into 2018 is to not sit complacently by.
The Lord is teaching me to fight the good fight with persistence. To not hide. To not accept, unless He tells me to.
When poop hits the fan in 2018, instead of accepting it, I want to run. Not away. But to Jesus to ask Him to help me fight.
