Don’t Give Up

 

Don’t give up on God.

Don’t give up on prayer.

Even if you think God is silent,

It doesn’t mean He doesn’t care.

Keep your vision alive.

Make sure it aligns with the Word.

There is so much more to do,

In this crazy and mixed u world.

 

This life can be like a race.

You may stumble and fall.

Waiting at the finish line,

Is the Creator of it all.

What result do you want?

How will you get there today?

What problems will you face?

Will you take time to praise and pray?

 

You must be faithful in the little,

If you expect God to do the great.

There are a lot of stumbling blocks,

On the way to heaven’s gate.

You gain so much experience,

In your suffering and pain.

You may seem to be standing still,

As you wait on heaven’s gain.

 

Even if you want to run away,

Because you are tired of this life,

Be willing to hang in there,

Praising God through pain and strife.

It may seem boring.

You may not be going anywhere.

Believe you have a Savior,

Who will always watch and care.

 

Don’t give up on God.

Don’t give up on prayer.

Even if you think God is silent,

It doesn’t mean He doesn’t care.

 

TRW 7-13-17

Acts 20:24

 

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

 

All of us are called into the ministry of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, when we accepted Jesus as our Lord. We recognize the fact that we were once lost without direction in this life. In an instant we were a Christian, but it takes time to learn where and how to serve the God who created us and the Jesus who saved us. Our answers are not instant, so we need to keep doing the best we can while we wait for our requests to be answered or for the right doors to be opened.

Everyone has a different need in their life and everyone is given special talents that can be used to bring others into the canopy of God’s grace. Many people may have a good life on the surface, but without Jesus in their life, all their success is truly superficial and will not mean anything at the end of this life. The Christian believes in eternity with Jesus in a place of total peace and love.

That is a goal worth working for and worth waiting on.  Don’t give up on God as you await the direction for your life.
