Many of us exclaimed, “What an order! I can’t go through with it.” Do not be discouraged. No one among us has been able to maintain anything like perfect adherence to these principles. We are not saints. The point is, that we are willing to grow along spiritual lines. The principles we have set down are guides to progress. We claim spiritual progress rather than spiritual perfection. Alcoholics Anonymous pg 60
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT
Father God, I thank you for this day! Thank you for helping to overcome all the obstacles that are in my life today. I thank you for reminding me that all things are possible with you and that everything I can see is subject to change. I pray Father God for the strength to persevere and the courage to not be discouraged and quit knowing that my victory is waiting for me as long as I follow you. In Jesus Name, Amen!
