“…one cannot suffer as the result of any labor of love, but grows stronger because of it.” (Science and Health, page 387)
A labor of love comes with all of divine Love’s power behind it, as well as Love’s assurance, comfort, and care for us as well as for our good work. When we put our heart into an effort that intends to bless, we truly can’t suffer for it. The world, or the various wrestlings of mortal thought, may suggest resistance, but those arguments and accusations can’t be damaging to us or to our righteous cause.
The presentation of weariness and discouragement and fear as well as physical discomfort, can be rejected as unnecessary and unreal. We can trust the divine energy and intention, God’s own control and expectation and so we can continue to believe in what we are doing and in ourselves. We mustn’t allow the sense of time constraints and the beliefs of stress and limitation to cause us to forget the most vital element in our work—our love.
That very love, that affection for good, is a protection and a power. God’s Love for us fuels that which we love, feeds us with inspiration, and defends us from harm. We can persist in what we are led to do fearlessly, looking to our heart daily to remind us of the love we have for what we do, and for God who gave us this purpose and is faithfully carrying it out.
