Trusting In The Lord

Enduring to the end means enduring as much as God will have experience for the fulfilling of the wise purposes for his children. Whether or not we finish in life what we want to accomplish doesn't matter as much as just finishing as much as we can honorably. He knows if we haven't tried when we should have and He will be our perfect judge. We must pray that what he has in store for us is to accomplish what we will be able to do. Many Wonderful Blessings, Gar, "Christlike love can bring peace into any neighborhood." Marvin Ashton

Occasionally discouragement may darken our pathway; frustration may be a constant cvompanio. In our ears there may sound the sophistry of Satan as he whispers, "You cannot save the world; your small efforts are meaningless. You haven't time to be concerned for others." Trusting in the Lord, let us turn our heads from such falsehoods and make certain our feet are firmly planted in the path of service and our hearts and souls are dedicated to follow the example of the lord. In moments when the light of resolution dims and when the heart grows faint, we can take comfort from His promise: "Be not weary in well-doing...Out of small things proceedeth that which is great. Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind."
