Bible Verses on "Keep Going"
We all want to fight the good fight. We want to make it to the finish line. But at times it feels as though we can barely get ourselves out of bed, much less be aware of an enemy who walks around ready to catch us off guard, ready to devour us.
When you find yourself in a place of deep discouragement, it can feel as though all that is left to do is give up. Give up the good fight. In fact, we wonder if the fight is good at all. We wonder if it is worth it.
Though it may not always seem worth our while, let me encourage you in the truth that it is absolutely worth it. Our troubles and sorrows may feel as they outweigh us at times, but when we commit ourselves and our troubles to the Lord, no trouble is too heavy for His mighty hands.
If you find yourself needing some encouragement to keep going today, the best place you can fix your eyes on is His Word. It serves as a comfort in our weakness and truth in the midst of a blurred vision. Cling to these promises of God as you endure through this time of difficulty.
