Our Daily Struggle

by Kalon Mitchell

As I come away from the Feast, I am struck by the fact that I am not the only one that struggles with the troubles and the tests of living in Satan’s world. During the Feast I had the chance to share my stories and hear from others their life experiences. I felt rejuvenated and comforted when again realizing that we all struggle in our Christian life.

If I can look past the fact that I am not the only one fighting on, I can find encouragement and strength. Now as I go about my days, I keep in mind that I can do this, with God’s help, just as others sharing my faith have to, and just as others before me have done.

I need to remind myself that we are all in this together, and that I can help others, and receive help from others, when going through rough times. I can and should draw strength from others–and I should be willing and able to give strength to others–to be encouraged by them and to encourage them to persevere, to never give up!

God has called me and wants to see me make it into His Kingdom. Knowing this, I also know that all my struggles are worth fighting, and that God will give me the help that I need to persevere. And at times, God may want me to provide help and encouragement to others. In the end, it will have been more than worth it.
