Do you want to give up? Tired of trying to do anything good in this world? Feeling like it all doesn't really matter, or even if it does what can little old you do? I have felt this way a lot in the last eight months, and I have doubted my place in the big story God is telling. Maybe you feel the same.
There is a moment towards the end of The Two Towers where Sam speaks truth into the life of a dejected, beaten Frodo.
He transports him and us to a new place when He reminds Frodo of the old, old stories the ones worth remembering.
He strongly reminds Frodo why people in those stories never gave up, why they kept going.
“Because there is something good in this world worth fighting for!”
The Apostle Paul said:
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, will award unto me on that day " 2 Timothy 4:7-8 (NIV)
There is still good in this world worth fighting for, never forget that!
