Key v9

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

I'm really tired right now, and sometimes it seems so pointless to try to do all my work. It seems like I won't succeed, and it seems like even if I do succeed, that it won't do any good. I'm tempted to not get up in the morning in the first place, or, once I have, to just lay down and go back to sleep. I'm tempted to waste time and be lazy.

Application

I'll just do the best I can, because when it's the right time, I'll be glad I did.

Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus

By Hel­en Lem­mel, 1922
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
