Don’t Give Up

Don't Give Up!Do the pressures of life overwhelm you? Don’t Give Up. Are you worried about unending bill payment, mortgage payment, stress at work, recession and lack of expected results? Don’t Give Up. Maybe your problem is emotional, lack of approval and love from your spouse or friends. Don’t Give Up. Problems ranging from sickness to lack of companion, unemployment and depression. Maybe you just lost a loved one or you know someone who has just lost a loved one. My heart goes out to you and your family but I have good news for you. Something or someone may be lost but all is not lost and gone, there is still hope for you. The situation you are in is not final and God is thinking about you this moment and making plans for a turn around for you. Don’t Give Up!

Don't Give Up!”For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome” Jeremiah 29:11. You may wonder why will God be thinking about me, sure He will be too busy to think about me. But that’s not true. God is mindful of you “It has been solemnly and earnestly said in a certain place, What is man that you are mindful of him, or the son of man that you graciously and helpfully care for and visit and look after him?” Hebrews 2:6. God has a plan and purpose for you and He wants you to find it. The ultimate desire of God for you to be in relationship with Him and know His presence. “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers.” 3John 1:2. The bible is God’s will to man and in all of scriptures God speaks about his love and care for man. You don’t have to face your problem alone, God is ready to help you out. You may be saying you don’t have a clue about what I am going through, that could be true but God knows and cares about you beyond your imagination. I encourage you today to believe that there is hope for you and I want to join you in prayer. First I want you to know that you need to call Jesus Christ into your heart and let him be the Lord of your life. Maybe He is already your saviour but have you made Him your Lord? If not join me in this short prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus I want you to come into my heart to be my Lord and Saviour from this day forward. I confess with my mouth that you are the Son of God and God raised you from the dead. Thank you for dying for my sins and thank you for coming into my heart. Amen

Food for thought

If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer and the fulfilment of your fall.

Don’t let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest. Don’t judge life by one difficult season. Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come some time later.
