Some days I’m afraid that I’m not making progress.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m settling for lagging behind.
And there are moments when I want to give up and give in.
But I’m still in the fight.
I haven’t surrendered.
I WILL NOT QUIT.
Because my God is The Living God.
THERE IS NO DEVASTATION GREATER THAN HIS RESURRECTION.
There is no desert that will not bloom under His flood of grace.
There is no wall that is higher or stronger than His onslaught of mercy and no heart so cold that the warmth of His faithful love cannot penetrate it.
He has promised to redeem my pain.
The Spirit of God, the Master, is on me
because God anointed me.
He sent me to preach good news to the poor,
heal the heartbroken,
Announce freedom to all captives,
pardon all prisoners.
God sent me to announce the year of his grace—
a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies—
and to comfort all who mourn,
To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion,
give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes,
Messages of joy instead of news of doom,
a praising heart instead of a languid spirit.
Isaiah 61:1-3a MSG
