Hangin' In Too


"Never give in! Never give in! Never, never, never, never----in nothing, big or small, large or petty----never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense."

Winston Churchill Oct.29, 1941

I took this Churchill quote out of a speech he made to his old school of Harrow. It was given just after the Germans had blitzed England and things were looking grim. Things also seemed grim for Job as he had lost nearly everything of meaning in his life. What he comes back to is the belief that God loves him! I believe that in his heart he believes that nothing can separate him from that love. It is that type of non-separation that the apostle Paul writes about in Rom.8:35-39. It starts with; "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?" It goes on to enumerate many things in the next few verses and finishes with this; "neither height nor depth, nor anything else in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." It would be good for us to read and meditate on these verses. It is a key component of hangin' in that we remember God's love for us through Jesus Christ. We should feel secure in that we are forgiven, cherished and loved by God. There should be a confidence in us that God will never allow tragedy to strike our souls. With this mental attitude, powered by God, we can hang in no matter what befalls us. There is this great power through God in Jesus Christ to overcome that is bigger than our problems. Sometimes we just have to hang in for a bit....

Have a wonderful day...Spend time with Him... Love mark Phil.4:11
