Keep Holding on: Christ is our reason to persevere

Jesus Christ, our Solid Rock and stable foundation has given us every reason to keep the faith and to persevere. “He who promised is faithful.” He’s FAITHFUL!
Doesn’t that sound so good?. I don’t know about you but that revved my soul to press on even in tough times.

My God! I just thank You for such an encouraging word this day.

While it is easy to slack off from reading the Holy Word, praying and being in fellowship with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, we need it. We really do. Life can pass us by in a blink of an eye.

The Lord desires us to commune with Him and with others. We cannot stand on our own and we surely cannot make this journey without guidance,  encouragement,  hope and faith. We are in desperate need of His strength. We are in desperate need of Him.

Today’s scripture prompted a desire within me for I surely have slacked in being away from you all. While I have my church family here where I live, I desire to be in fellowship with you all and to do the Lord’s will and send a word of encouragement out to those who need it.

While I never want to walk in disobedience,  I still strive daily to do the Father’s business that is set before me. I’m far from perfect. I’ve been reminded that some things are only for a season. When it’s time to let go…. it’s time to let go and move forward.

Our journey may we require us to stop and rest (and witness) for a while in a particular place but soon it’s time to pack up and keep going for each man’s road is not the same though we are prayerfully still headed in the same direction.

What I’m saying is to not give up and do not be deterred.

Be blessed and bless others for the Lord has shown favor to you this day and remember to encourage someone for we never know just how much a kind word or act can affect ones life.

With love and prayers always,
Terra
