Prayer Corner

This week meditate on . . . 2 Corinthians 4:16-18  

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”  (NIV)

It is easy to lose heart and quit.  We all have faced problems in our relationships or in our work that have caused us to want to think about laying down the tools and walking away.  Don’t let fatigue, pain, or criticism force you off the path God has set you on.  Be steadfast in your commitment to serve Christ, no matter what!
