“Survival can be summed up in three words – never give up. That’s the heart of it really. Just keep trying.” (Bear Grylls)
This is a time of year when people often feel overwhelmed, tired and that things are out of control. This is also a time when the many young people we work with are stressed and about to start exams. In Hebrews 12:1 we read that “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfector of our faith” (Heb 12:1-2). I would encourage every one reading this to strengthen your resolve at this time – to be a survivor, to be an overcomer – to finish the race! Trust God for the strength to do so. Trust Him for wisdom for the exams. Put in the hard work of the daily grind. Never, ever, give up.
The video below challenges us to keep pressing towards our goals.
