Endurance within Foundation

WEEK 6: Correcting Our Foundation

Day 39, May 12-13, 2015                  {Psalm 98:1-9}

Today is the energy of Endurance in Bonding. Perseverance in our spiritual work is the difference between the winners and the losers in the game of life. Joseph spent 13 years in prison before he became the source of abundance and power in Egypt. Today, embrace the process and see the Light in the fact that you have not already arrived. 

~Karen Berg

The old song “inch by inch, row by row, we’re gonna make this garden grow’ seems appropriate for the theme of this day of Counting the Omer. Effort, diligence, determination are the necessary building blocks for any strong structure, whether that is a physical one like a house, or a spiritual practice like daily expressions of gratitude.  Today, we recognize that “small acts” can add up: it can be sharing our smiles, offers of assistance, harmonizing with someone else’s melody, making a new friend or opening a book we’ve been meaning to read for a long time. 

Goals that require slow, steady effort may seem beyond attaining, but, throughout Biblical history, it has been those that have endured. The characters of the Bible left us with  a legacy of a strong foundation for us to build upon today. Or as it says in Hebrews 12:1(NLT) – Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
