Never Give Up

Galatians 6:9 (ESV)
9 "And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up."
Last night we got in our van and headed to one of the prisons that we minister to. I called three times to make sure that there were no lockdowns that would keep us from entering the facility. When we arrived the guard informed us that due to sickness the staff was understaffed and the prison was on lockdown.
My first thought was, "May I speak with the Captain about this?" Then common sense, directed by the Lord, helped me hold my tongue on the matter. We encouraged the officer who was staying an extra shift and looked very tired. Another ministry team came in at the same time so we joined hands together and prayed for the men that would miss the meetings as well as for the staff on duty.
The same thing happened to us two weeks prior to this event. Do you know what we did? We thanked them for their service and did the next best thing; that was to go get something to eat and have fellowship with one another. We will be back for our next scheduled ministry time, and, until then, we will not grow weary in doing well with the help of the Lord
Father, we place our agendas in Your hands and submit to holding fast to our position. In Your word You said that we shall reap a harvest in due season. Thank You for the patience to endure through disappointments that come our way. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
