“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Winston Churchill
Sometimes, even though we feel as if the Lord has left us, He has not. Do you have the patience and endurance to let it play out, that is the question. Yes. I feel like giving up sometimes. Honestly, when it comes down to it… I know that I cannot. It just isn’t an option. I must stay the course… if for no other reason, I am too curious to see how this all turns out.
Are you resolved today to stay the course no matter what? Have you trained your heart in the ways of The Lord so that it won’t fail in the face of tremendous difficulty? If we are not fully resolved before the testings of our faith begin in earnest then we have no hope of surviving the flames and fires from our foes. Stand and remember, today, who it is you stand with and whom you fight for. He will be faithful. Peace, Sean G.

4:14 Then the women said to Naomi, “Blessed be the LORD, who has not left you this day without a redeemer, and may his name be renowned in Israel!
