Luke 18:1
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
 Gold Cross 
We are all on different journeys.  We are all experiencing different seasons of life.  I almost gave up on God a few years ago until He got my attention on January 8, 2004. 
I had grown up going to church.  I accepted Christ (for the first time) when I was seven years old.  There was no doubt in my mind where I would spend Eternity……but……I wasn’t getting it — I simply didn’t get it…there had to be more…I pondered, “What was the point in following Christ?”…I was miserable and being tormented by the evil one of this world. 
God allowed me to fall into the pit before I could realize my full dependence on Him. My true testament to my walk with Christ began a little more than four years ago on that cold January evening in my living room.  I hit what I consider in my life…ROCK BOTTOM. 
I was ready to throw in the towel…..I was mad at God, and I had no faith in where I was headed.  I exclaimed, “This isn’t fair God!” He knocked me down, and I challenged Him.  This was the last straw.  I said, “OK God …hit me with your best shot ….I release it all to you.”  Actually, I was kind of disrespectful and irreverent (but He can take it).  I was frustrated.  I was angry. I was depressed. I was just plain worn out on this life. I had only an ounce of hope left.
AND….BECAUSE I SIMPLY ASKED….I experienced a true miracle. From that day forward He provided security and comfort like never before, all because I let Him carry me. He promised me a future.  And, I got it.  Sure there will continue to be trouble in this world…….but He overcame it for me. 
I realized…I am an foreigner to this land….my purpose was to prepare the way for others to have the opportunity to see HIM everlasting.  I also realized at that point, my gift was to encourage others……because I had been in a place of discouragement that was so painful….NOW, I know why God allowed that trial…..He wanted me to share how He changed me inside-out. I am so grateful that I didn’t give up in the “winter” season….SPRING was ahead! 
I couldn’t resist sharing the following message sent to me by a dear sister in Christ, Carol Adkins.  Even as a super-charged born again believer, I still experience all the seasons of life……but when times are tough…I no longer feel like throwing in the towel, because HE is by my side.  He is my SALVATION. He is my PEACE.  He is my JOY.  He is my STRENGTH. He is my RESCUER. He is my HEALER. He is my PROVIDER.  He is my BANNER OF VICTORY. He is my COMFORTER.  He is my MASTER!  He is MY BEST FRIEND.
Whatever season you are in……do not forget the CREATOR of your body, soul, and spirit.  He wants to be intimate with you…..He loves you more than you could ever fathom…take it from me, I know.
Absorb the following powerful message…….
“Never, never, never, never give up”
 – Winston Churchill
