We watched a video – never give up tug of war video. 1 boy preserved to not cross the line which would have caused his whole team to lose. How does this relate to us? This is what the VYG is about and teaches us…. to never give up. Unfortunately, some people do choose to quit and give up along the way. But it is always a personal choice. Many decide to give up on their journey with God, they even started well but eventually when reality kicked in about the sacrifices that are required, they give up. God will never live inside a quitter. But we must remember what we have learnt, the message of last Wednesdays Real Talk “Change your spirit”. We have the strength. We can do it. God told us to ‘be strong’ He doesn’t make us strong – the strength is in us. When our own spirit has changed we will be unstoppable. No more laziness, no more procrastination etc.
For I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
God doesn’t want us to be perfect. God wants us to be decided.
