Daily Devotion – Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant

We did it. We finished our month-long job of painting and cleaning and sprucing up our home. We washed the last of the windows, swept the front steps, and vacuumed the carpets. We are completely done and ready to sell. Finally.

Most days were exhausting and others were stressful, but as I’m sure you know, there’s a good feeling that comes with hard work that makes it all seem worthwhile.

As I stood back and looked at all the work that we’ve done, I got to thinking about Paul’s words in 2 Timothy Chapter 4,

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. (2 Timothy 4:7, KJV)

And with that, I’m reminded that one day I’ll stand before Christ. One day I’ll finish this race set before me.

It’s my sincere hope that when I do, I’ll see Him smile and hear those words I’ve longed to hear, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”

That’s when I’ll see that keeping the faith was well worth the fight, and that hard work is always worthwhile.

Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. (2 Timothy 4:8, NIV)

It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical FitnessReshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
