Struggle: Day 7

“I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance.”
Revelation 2:2 NRSV


You struggle, you persevere, you endure through the pain of grief. Rest today in the certainty that your work and emotional toil are not in vain. “For this I toil and struggle with all the energy that he powerfully inspires within me” (Colossians 1:29 NRSV). Claim the energy and power of God’s inspiration this day and every day.


God, it is good to rest from the ongoing struggle of my grief. I am encouraged, for you know my works, my toil, and my patient endurance. May I live refreshed in your energy and power as I seek rest for my soul in you today. Amen.


I win the struggle when I acknowledge that my life is here and now.
