Finishing Big!

As we all come to the close of a turbulent year, I hope you haven't lost faith in the one who is still on the throne.  I know, it seems as if God has somehow "left the building" for the year 2020.  I know it feels that way, but I have found that when God allows hardships to come upon His people, there is always something good that follows.  It may not be 2021 but something good will come.

                 "Count it all joy my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 
                  for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
                  And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and
                  complete, lacking in nothing."
                                                                                          James 1:2-4

Being a faithful disciple of Christ is not for "whimps".  All through scripture the people of God has suffered on many levels.  Now, on our watch, it our turn to show the faithfulness of the Church.  For those of us who have come to Christ in the hope it will be an easy journey to eternity, you need to turn to seasoned Christian veterans for strength.  

                  "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. 
                   In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome
                   the world."
                                                                                           John 16:33

Never give up beloved.  Never give up!  God has something planned for His people.
