Today What Stands in Your Way?

Be on guard.
Stand firm in the faith.
Be courageous.
Be strong.
And do everything with love. 
I Corinthians 16:13-14

 

“Do not pray for easy lives! Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be a miracle.” – Phillips Brooks

 

Be strong!
We are not here to play, to dream, to drift;
We have hard work to do, and loads to lift.
Shun not the struggle; face it.
‘Tis God’s gift.

Be strong!
Say not the days are evil – Who’s to blame?
And fold the hands and acquiesce – O shame!
Stand up, speak out, and bravely,
In God’s name.

Be strong!
It matters not how deep entrenched the wrong,
How hard the battle goes, the day how long,
Faint not, fight on!
Tomorrow comes the song.

– Maltbie D. Babcock

  1. I enjoyed the encouragement, especially with the decisions that our country’s highest court has been handing down lately. God’s Word is always just what we need. THANKS!
