Keep On, Keeping On

I often have mornings where I wake up and do not want to face the day. I tend to hide myself back in my sheets and wish I could stay there a long time in the comfort and warmth. That lasts about 20 minutes when I come to realise that I really should get up and get on with it. I think it's safe to say that most of us have these mornings where we just don't want to face the day because it means going into work, going to college, doing something we have put off in the past etc.

Like I said, I often have these mornings but the truth is we just need to keep on keeping on. Yes there are times when we are thinking; 'why should I bother today?" or "what's the point?" I put my hand up and say that I've had these thoughts going through my head a lot of the times when I wake up.
 .... Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” - (Matthew 17:20) 
I find this verse very encouraging as I tend to think of my work as a mountain. I don't know how much more I can keep climbing before I give up and fall to the ground again. But if I have faith in God, then I have no need to worry about climbing. I don't even have to worry about the mountain. All that's required is that I have faith. A mustard seed is minuscule, but that much worth of faith is enough.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. - (Isaiah 41:10)
God is always there to help us and lift us up in all situations. Again I can put my hand up and say that I don't always recognise that. Nevertheless, God remains faithful to me and sticks by me step by step.

We can tackle everything in our everyday even if sometimes we don't feel up to it. Even though we may wake up and don't know what we are going to do next, don't know where we are going, wish we could be doing something else,.... just keep on keeping on. The tapestry in already sewn, all that's needed is a mustard seed worth of faith.
