You’ve Made It This Far

Isaiah 40:29-31 (Berean)
29 "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
30 "Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
31 "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
by John Greenleaf Whittier
"When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is strange with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a failure comes about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow—
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out—
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell just how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit—
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit."

Thank You, Father, for encouraging us to not give up when we get weak in our journey. The door of opportunity stands open and ready to reveal to us, the believers, that it’s worth the wait to not quit because we've made it this far. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come
