Grace morning on this thankful and tranquil Thursday.
No matter what is occurring, even if you feel overwhelmed by obstacles that hinder you from getting up from your knockdown.
Never Give UP!
Trials can come suddenly and without advance warning, they seem to end up in one of two ways. If you know what God’s basic will is for your life and you trust Him, then you’ll have the confidence and the faith that no matter what you see or feel, God is working out His perfect plan in His timing and way. However, as so many are finding out, if you don’t know what God’s will is for your life and you don’t trust Him, then your faith and your confidence erodes in trials and you sink, suffer, and succumb to your struggle.
Never give up! How often do we hear great athletes say this in their interviews, "we kept on fighting and never gave up." Usually this means the athlete and his team came out on the winning side.
Through out history we remember and honor those people who "never gave up." Those who were willing to go the extra mile, those are the ones we remember.
Trusting God completely during horrific trials and tragedies is still difficult. The route our natural minds take when everything falls apart in our lives is not towards trusting, enduring and persevering, but towards discouragement, confusion and depression.
“But me, I’m not giving up. I’m sticking around to see what GOD will do. I’m waiting for God to make things right. I’m counting on God to listen to me.”
Micah 7:7 MSG
Trusting God means cleaving to Him with unreserved confidence.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this trouble-less and triumphant Thursday!
