I don’t have witty metaphor for you this morning. But – I do want to remind you that there is no expectation of perfection.
You are a work in process. I am a work in process. And the “work” won’t be completed in this lifetime.
We have our ups and downs. Instead of raising our “ups” to higher levels, what if we were to simply concentrate on making our “downs” less down?
Here’s what I mean: In Isaiah 40:4 we are told that “The rugged land shall be a plain.”
Instead of trying to maintain our highest on-top-of-the-mountain days, what if instead we still let those moments come and go and be wonderfully high highs, but our lows weren’t as low and were fewer in-between?
What if we built a habit of laying our lows at the foot of the Cross, put our trust in God, and let Him help us raise our lows?
What would that look like?

Heavenly Father, we ask You today for Your truth as a belt tight around our waist. We put on the zeal to announce Your good news of peace as shoes for our feet. We put on Your righteousness, O Christ, as our breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet for our head.
Father, we take up faith as a shield, which is able to put out all the fiery darts of the enemy, and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your Word, O Lord.
Father, may the love with which You have loved Jesus be in us, and may Jesus be in us. We ask You for the grace of a servant’s heart. Amen.
