James 1:12 NASB "Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him."Finally!! Today's Word simple put says to keep on keeping on!! My arms were aching, my back ready to give out and my legs were beginning to cramp up as we worked to put the fire out! It had been hours since we first arrived on scene of a large warehouse fire. Working through the night, we kept at it, with new crews coming in to relieve us from time to time. Finally after many hours, the fire was extinguished and we were able to go back to the fire house. Life will throw those situations at us, whether at home or at work, that will take all our strength, all that we have but if we remain determined with Christ, we will make it to the end. Be strong in the Lord and keep our eyes upon Him throughout the struggles, and one day we will hear those words "good and faithful"! peace, tom
