I love the writing of Max Lucado. In his book,
He Still Moves Stones
he shares this:
Just when the womb gets too old for babies, Sarah conceives (she was 70!).
Just when the failure is too great for grace, David is pardoned...
The lesson? Don't Give Up!
So is the road ahead of you long? Don't stop!
Is the night black? Don't quit (it's darkest before the dawn!).
The check might be in tomorrow's mail.
The apology may be in the making.
The job offer may be on the desk.
(You might miss the answer to your prayers!)
When things go wrong and they sometimes will
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low and 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 quit.
Life is strange with it's twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns 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.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a fair and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out~
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems afar,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,~
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
Hope your day is awesome!
Love to you...
