Are you finishing well? 2 Timothy 4:7

Good morning everyone,
Yes, I have been out of sorts as of late and I am moving forward on what is in reserve.  He tells us that He will carry us when we are out of gas!  2 Timothy 4:7 says, 'I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.'  When it doesn't make sense for us to plunge forward, He gives us reason after reason why it makes sense to finish the race!  Not by just begrudgingly doing it, but doing it because of the faith that He gives us.  When your body wants to give up and just roll over, He is the One that can help you accomplish the details that you might say don't matter.  Remember, 2 Corinthians 6:7 reminds us that we are to walk by faith, not by sight.  In essence, Paul goes on to say that his body is finished and he is ready to be with the Lord, but he knows that he still has a job to accomplish for the Lord and as long as he is here, he is going to allow his faith to help him finish strong!  Don't we all need that sort of faith brothers and sisters?  Let me encourage you to approach each moment as a tipping point and ask God to fill you so that your decisions will be to lean toward His ways!  Choices are plentiful in any given day.  As we approach this day, ask Him to help you make the ones that please Him!
Your brother in Christ,
