never quit

artprize2011Are you tired of how your life is going?
Do circumstances seem to overwhelm you?
Is hope a distant word?

I remember many years of those feelings. BUT NOW…such a difference knowing God goes before me. He has better steps than those I can imagine. With Him all things are possible.

Jesus is leading those who have gone before us.
The team is cheering us on.
We are never alone! (Heb 12)
The race is not over.

See the light in that tunnel?
Keep looking – it’s shining!

Paul tells us, “In light of all this, here’s what I want you to do. While I’m locked up here, a prisoner for the Master, I want you to get out there and walk—better yet, run!—on the road God called you to travel. I don’t want any of you sitting around on your hands. I don’t want anyone strolling off, down some path that goes nowhere. And mark that you do this with humility and discipline—not in fits and starts, but steadily, pouring yourselves out for each other in acts of love, alert at noticing differences and quick at mending fences.

You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness.

But that doesn’t mean you should all look and speak and act the same. Out of the generosity of Christ, each of us is given his own gift. Ephesians 4:1-7

  1. Oh how I thank the Lord that I opened your post this morning. I am sitting here feeling overwhelmed with what to do and how things are going, and your words have put it all into perspective. This race isn’t a sprint, but an endurance with spurts here and there, and through it all, it is the only race worth running. Thanks for the reminder, many blessings today.

    • Thank you Lord for Your Word that helps us understand our journey’s better. Let Lucinda feel Your Presence through her days and have Your perfect peace drive out all fear and uncertainty. Give her strength and reassurance each day! Bless you

    amen……we should all be of one mind and voice when it comes to God….but he does not want us to be clones….clones are prisoners….and God wants us to be choose Christ while still remaining unique – but it must be our choice.
