We live in a time of easy access. A time of low endurance, filled with achieving only short term goals and satisfaction. But, if one is to follow the Lord Jesus, we MUST live by this motto: Never Give Up!!! Never Surrender!!

We must understand that the trials of life WILL come.Even Christians are NOT excluded from the rains of life. As we learn to embrace this truth and seize them, they become an opportunity to grow and to develop endurance.  So EMBRACE the rain and let it become a reason to press into Christ. In this, you will discover secrets both in Him and Yourself. Secrets likened unto rare jewels and hidden treasure.

Don’t get stuck in the cycle of asking “Why did this have to happen to me?” It did! God didn’t stop it. What we need to figure out is, “Am I personally responsible for this?”, or “Is this a time of trial?” Beg God to give you His perspective on it. Know that you are called with a purpose and that it is working FOR YOUR GOOD. (Romans 8:28) Then make a declaration that by the grace of God and the help of God, and by your dependency on His Mercy, “I WILL see the Goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:13-14)

It is settled. Regardless of my failures, I am not a quitter and neither is God. I will “Never Give Up!! Never Surrender!!”
