Your corner’s coming

Usually when you want to give up, breakthrough is just around the corner.

Stay in it.

Don’t throw it in, don’t relent, don’t hang up the towel.

“So may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father…encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.” (2 Thess 2:16-17)
