Don't Give Up!!!!

Linking with Charlotte at  Spiritual Sunday and Laura at  Faith Filled Fridays


"The greatest disease in the West is not TB or leprosy -  it's being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. Many in the world are dying for a piece of bread....but many more are dying for a little love." Mother Teresa

Since that day He touched me.....my motto's been...Don't give up. Don't ever give up! Giving up isn't an option. Even in those times that look like defeat - 'don't give up!'  I've thought about it.....I've even wanted to.....but something keeps me in the game....something keeps me holding on. It's love...His love - a love that's so strong...deep....and powerful....and won't give up on me. It gives me courage to hold on.. His love....a love....it trumps all despair. 
 
Don't give up. You are loved......

Don't give up-such a powerful message Sarah(Nikki). I too have felt like giving up and really not known why I did not except knowing that it was not me that helped or stopped me from giving up. The strength, hope and ability to keep going came from God's love and strength. as a new year starts there are the old issues still wrestled with taken into this new year to be dealt with which require strength and courage which can make me quake and doubt but your message is what I needed to hear-don't give up. God Bless and thank you.

The one thing that will remain constant and forever true is God’s love for us; His love won’t fade; it won’t fail us. It’s always there, especially when we are tempted to give up! :) Love the quote....

Blessings and love Nikki!

Love is the answer. Yes. This gets to the heart of the matter. Thanks, Nikki.

Thank you for this very encouraging post. I needed to hear it today. One of the most difficult things about my recent move to the mountains is my sense of loneliness. I've made friends, but I am constantly aware of being *away* from friends and family, and a place that I called home for almost 29 years.

His Love - it has become an anchor.

GOD BLESS!
