Keep Going

Life is made of challenges, victories, sorrows, and blessings, and if one is not carefully tuned to the ways and will of God, they become discouraged.  Each day this young African laboriously carries water for a long distance to care for the needs of life and garden and surely becomes tired and discouraged at times, but must keep going.

Many times the events of life are overwhelming and difficult.  The temptations to complain, be angry, and give up flood the mind.  Yet we are reminded that God knows and has promised that there is victory and blessings for everyone that obeys.  Check out Romans 8:28, 35-39.  The labors and challenges of life are the tools God is using to make us into the instrument that He desires.  Ephesians 2:8-10

It is in trusting God and lingering in His presence (Isaiah 40:31) that we gain His power and strength to keep going. 

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” Romans 15:13
