“never give up!”

(becoming the juggernauts we were born to be)



It was such a beautiful weekend in the fresh life house!  it’s always a party, but we got to celebrate the Mothers in the House, and all the ladies with the heart of a Mother. And we also got to celebrate our Pastor on his birthday! Partay!!!



And goodness what a message!  I love getting to study the book of 1 Thessalonians, and I’m so thankful for my husband who studied so hard this week to preach the Word with such fire and passion and conviction.  I sure do love him, and it was such a sweet thing getting to read all the posts honoring him on his birthday.  He’s such a gift to me, and to our whole church.

This message was so powerful and such a needed reminder for us all.

We must never give up!

. . . even when it doesn’t seem to be working.

“Progress isn’t always visible.”

. . . even when your motives are misunderstood.

“Popularity is never the goal, being faithful is.”

. . . even when it’s hard.

“There is no greatness without difficulty.”

. . . even when your sacrifice isn’t noticed or appreciated.

(Because Heaven is watching!)

“impart: send heat out of your life to give it to others so that they may walk worthy of God.”
