Never Give Up

When he was a small child, Winston Churchill was neglected and abandoned by his family. He was sent to a boarding school for his education. While he was there, he constantly asked for his parents to come visit him. But they never came. His childhood was distressing and his early career disastrous. However, he was able to turn every set back into a success and every trial into a triumph. Late in life he was asked to return to that boarding school and to deliver the commencement address. His address consisted of three words, “Never give up!”

Life can be tough, really tough. But if we place our trust in God, He can and will turn our tragedies into triumphs, our failures into fortunes. Rather than give up, we must go on. We must believe what the Bible says, “I can do all things through Christ!” Not a few things. Not many things. But all things. Behave what you believe!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, may I always remember that there is no problem that is too difficult for You to solve and no burden too big for you to bear. All things are possible if only I believe. Increase my faith and trust in You as I face the issues of life: in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Philippians 4:13
