Finishing with Joy
Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
Beginning something is easy, but finishing takes courage. In the early stages of something new, we get all excited about it, so we have a lot of emotions to support us. But when the emotions wear off and all that’s left is a lot of hard work and the need for patience, that’s when we find out who really has what it takes to reach a goal and truly succeed.
In GOD’s eyes we aren’t successful if we abandon what He’s called us to do. He wants us to finish and do it with joy! If you have been tempted to give up—don’t!
If you don’t finish the thing you are currently involved in, you will face the same challenges with your next endeavor.
GOD doesn’t promise that finishing everything we start will be easy. Don’t quit! Rely on GOD’S grace and keep moving toward the finish line until you cross it in victory!
“And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
Is there any unfinished business in your life? Let’s encourage ourselves to set goals for finishing and be diligent to reach them!
Yes! In Yeshua’s Name. Amen.
