Never Give Up!!!

Do you ever felt like you have too much to do and not enough time to get it all accomplished?

I felt this way recently after coming home from three different trips right in a row. (This explains the lack of updates.) :-) I arrived home and it seemed like there was a mountain in front of me. Laundry to do, phone calls to make, errands to run etc...

My first reaction was to give up. "I'm overwhelmed and I can't get out!!!" If this is your cry today please first realize that you are not alone in this! Don't give up because that is exactly what Satan wants you to do. One of his greatest weapons is discouragement so don't listen.

What does God want us to do? (Amplified Versions)

Rom. 12:11 says: "Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord."

Eccles. 9:10 says: "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might."

Col.3:23-24 "Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. Knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [real] reward. [The One Whom] you are actually serving [is] the Lord Christ (the Messiah)."

God clearly does not want us to give in but to work heartily for Him!!!

Girls, don't give up...just do the next thing!!! (As Elisabeth Elliot puts it)

Have a wonderful day!!!
