The Will to Go On

How do you find the strength and the will to continue doing this role of wife and mother when you have no joy, no appreciation and no rewards? The will comes from the desire to obey God's Word, the hope that one day there will be joy, appreciation, rewards and, selfishly, the hope for relief and help. Even when you struggle in your will to remain faithful in your commitment to others, it is constrained by a greater desire to remain obedient to God - to be faithful to Him - by a fearful dread of His heavy hand of conviction should you decide and actually do escape your role.

In John 16:33 Jesus said,
"In the world you have tribulation, but take courage;
I have overcome the world."
