 Yet in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39


A time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear His voice and come out--those who have done good will rise to live and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned   John 5:28


       Interesting...a day is coming when every one will hear His voice. A day is coming when all the other voices will be silenced; all those other voices that have guided and directed so many lives will be heard  no longer. His voice--and His voice only--will be heard. Some will hear His voice for the very first time. It's not that He never spoke, it's just that they never listened. For these, God's voice will be the voice of a stranger. They will hear it once--and never hear it again. They will spend eternity in Hell  fending off the voices they followed on earth. But others will be called from their graves by a familiar voice. For they are sheep who know their Shepherd. Who have heard His voice countless times before. Who have followed His voice, His commands, His path. They are the servants who opened the door when Jesus knocked.


                               Never Quit

      Quitting now makes it easy to quit later. Not sure who said that, but it's true! You shouldn't quit because the next time you're in a situation that is difficult, quitting will seem like an easy way out. Quitting sets a mental precedent, making it easier to stop the next time. It's a mentality you can't afford if you want to compete well.   On one occasion, Jesus was so exasperated that He sounded 'close' to quitting. The disciples had been given authority to heal, however, this one little boy they couldn't (or didn't for lack of faith) heal. There was an ensuing argument between the disciples and some religious officials. Here comes Jesus. The boy's father begs Jesus to heal his son. In the midst of all the confusion, Jesus (and one can just hear the anger) states aloud: 'You faithless generation, how long will I have to be with you before you believe? Bring the boy to me.' Jesus rebuked the demon in the boy and it left him. I can just see Jesus rolling His eyes, but still smiling, warmly. Jesus never quit.  No matter how desperate you feel, press on. Sometimes spouses, kids, co-workers or others will disappoint you, anger you, even infuriate you; you may even blow you cool a bit or say words that you didn't intend. But don't quit. If Jesus taught us anything, it's to maintain hope and not quit.



                        Can You Feel The Tug

    There is a story about a boy flying a kite. The kite was flying so high that it had disappeared into the clouds. A man came by and asked the boy, 'What are you doing, son, holding on to that string?'  The boy smiled and replied, 'Sir, I am flying a kite!' The man looked up once, then looked again, and said, 'I don't see it up there.' The boy quickly replied, 'Well, Sir, I know it's up there because I can feel the tug. This is like the witness of the Holy Spirit within us. We may not be able to see it, or always see the evidence of it, but we can feel the tug in our hearts constantly, letting us know that we are in touch with God.
