Kingdom work. It is why we are here.
When kingdom work gets tough, my first response is to internalize, stomp my foot and get frustrated. It is easy for me to forget that we are constantly being refined (as long as we are walking with him). It is so easy for things to get out of perspective. Refiner's Fire. You know the song. My heart's one desire? Yes or No. In the midst of it all, I am being refined to be a purer more able servant. It is easy to get discouraged. We are here to see Jesus glorified and his kingdom further established, not ourselves or our own.
God is at work friends. Are you involved in kingdom work?
