Do some of you get weary and fustrated with the world around you; even within your own home? Does this fustration hinder your quest for holiness? How do you deal with it and why?
I tell you that this has been an ongoing battle. There are few and far between that share the quest that I have; to be holy and a servant of God. It is difficult enough to have to juggle all the responsibilities of this life. It is very hard to find a balance. My main challenge is rearing my pre-teen girls in this society. It is proving to be very fustrating.
Regardless of my home life or family or job or anything else, the Holy Spirit tells me one thing over and over, "Get up, and continue walking in the path of the Lord; never look behind but always follow His light." Does this mean that I go forward even when my family is not willing to follow? How do I get them to follow other than teaching them the ways and 'trying' to be an example myself? The lure of this world is proving to be stronger at times. Must I just pray and rely on faith alone?
Is this how many true believers feel? Must we always be self-sacrificing even when those closest to you deny you and put you down? Can we truly find peace and happiness in this lifetime?
