When you run a race, you must put forth all the physical energy you possess. In order to complete the race you must ENDURE to the end. Is there not much to be endured in pain, discomfort and anguish of many kinds? What keeps you moving in spite of the suffering is the anticipation of the prize, which can only be gained by running the race, and ENDURING to the end.
So it is with you, child! Grow not weary in well doing! Trust and believe I AM in control even when you do not understand why I do not quickly change the circumstances in your life.
I understand that you feel you could better serve Me if a differrent atmosphere surrounded you, but I want you to trust My divine wisdom and timing. Have I not kept you even in the midst of your surroundings? Shall I not continue to do so?
Understand, when you fret over those things that are in My hands, you bring into operation forces contrary to faith, and open the door for all manner of destructive thought processes--draining your spiritual energy.
You sing of My faithfulness, now add works to your faith by resting in the midst of the circumstances I have placed you in, and that only I can change. In this shall your victory come: prevailing over the situation and enduring until the day I appear to deliver you out. This is your race this hour, child. Come! Draw strength from Me--and fight the good fight.
