Never Give In

"Never admit defeat; keep on working at the Lord's work always, knowing that, in the Lord, you cannot be labouring in vain" 1 Corinthians 15:54-58


Nothing we do in the name of Jesus, is ever in vain.


Never Give In


It can be difficult sometimes to determine what the 'Lord's work' is in our lives. We can become so consumed by our hopes, expectations and goals, that we lose sight of and appreciation for all that we have and all that is good in our lives right now. When we put God first in our lives, as author and director of our life, every failure, every misstep takes on a new meaning, a new way for us to grow on our life's path. The Lord wants us to use our skills and talents for the betterment of ourselves and others. Our job is to keep with it, to do our job so that God's will can unfold in our lives. While God has a very personal plan for us, we also fit into to the wider plan for humanity. We may never know how important our work is in the context of this larger plan. So acknowledging that hidden veil, it is even more important that we persevere, that we do our best each and every day allowing the Lord to use our efforts for the betterment of ourselves and others.


Today, let us ask the Lord for the grace of courage and perseverance to do what we need to do in our current place in life to live fully and wholly in this world. We ask the Lord to grant success to our efforts that we may enjoy the fruits of our labour.
