Do you believe your life as a Christian can be compared to running a marathon while enduring pain and exhaustion to make it to the finish line? If so, was it easy for you in the beginning and it is now difficult to continue running the race?
Job, Apostle Paul and many others went through extreme hardships but endured to the end. What about us? How many of us will endure to finish line?

There are numerous Bible verses that speak on this topic. For example, in 2 Timothy 4:6 “For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” Can we truthfully say that we have kept the faith?
Spiritual Mother Copeland shared “Father, thank You for Your grace and mercy in or lives. Thank You for giving us the strength to handle anything that comes our way. We love You and receive Your empowerment in every area. In Jesus’ name!”
