I’ve been a homemaker 42 years, and every day of every week, I do some of the same things I did the day before. Cooking, cleaning, planning and organizing have to be done repeatedly even if done right the first time.
But that’s never kept me from enjoying my home.
Actually, the only thing that keeps me from enjoying my home is when I fail to keep up with things and they get messy and disorganized. Then I feel stressed.
And this is a good analogy for our spiritual lives.
Some spiritual disciplines need regular attention (prayer, repentance, fellowship, Bible study). We’ll never be done with them and when we put them off we get stressed with the mess in our souls.
Done regularly, however, they bring us joy and peace.
The key is pressing on.
Our souls are at peace when we “press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of” us (Philippians 3:12-14).
So, what are we waiting for….let’s press on!
