Christian friends, how often we too face situations that seem overwhelming and impossible. It's in those times that we need to find our confidence in Jesus, "the author and finisher of our faith", who will raise His nail-scarred hand and say, "Stay with it. Run the race.

      And if you keep on keeping on,
      Your strength He will renew.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY- Christ's victory in the past gives courage for the present and hope for the future.
