2 Corinthians 4:8-12
it’s been a long week… on the way to the 5th and last treatment… I TRULY appreciate the LOVE, PRAYERS, and SUPPORT from everyone during this time! I would like to use this time to ENCOURAGE everyone– sometimes what we go thru actually has nothing to do w/ us, personally… sometimes God just TRUSTS you so much to continue to HOLD TIGHT, PRESS THRU, and continue to SPREAD THE GOSPEL and the devil can’t stand it and will continue to persecute you and try to throw you off of the mission… it’s a constant battle but if thru it all I can encourage ONE person to just HANG IN THERE, TRUST, BELIEVE, KEEP FAITH and HOPE in God and in His PROMISES, then it was ALL WORTH IT to me!!
“We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but NOT cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but NOT driven to despair; We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but NEVER struck out and destroyed; Always carrying about in the body the liability and exposure to the same putting to death that the Lord Jesus suffered, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown forth by and in our bodies. For we who live are constantly [experiencing] being handed over to death for Jesus’ sake, that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be evidenced through our flesh which is liable to death. Thus death is actively at work in us, but [it is in order that our] LIFE [may be actively at work] in YOU.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-12 [AMP]
