It is late, and I am exhausted, but I couldn’t go to bed tonight without taking a minute to say thank you to all of you who commented on yesterday’s post, facebooked me, twittered at me, emailed me, sent me a carrier pigeon, whatever. Your words of encouragement are so precious.
Obviously I am in a season of life that is very difficult right now, but I am determined that Satan will not have victory in my life at this time.Your prayers and kind words have buoyed me up through difficult days, and it means so much to know that I am being lifted in prayer.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far utweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
— from 2 Corinthians 4
Therefore we do not lose heart.
