April 30, Today’s thought – Don’t Let Go!

Good Morning

Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are. James 5:17

Thank God for that!
He got under a juniper tree,
as you and I have often done;
he complained and murmured,
as we have often done;
was unbelieving,
as we have often been.
But that was not the case
when he really got into touch with God.
Though
“a man subject to like passions as we are,”
“he prayed praying.”
It is sublime in the original — not “earnestly,”
but “he prayed in prayer.”
He kept on praying.
What is the lesson here?
You must keep praying.
~~~Arthur T. Pierson

Each of three boys gave a definition of faith
which is an illustration of the tenacity of faith.
The first boy said, “It is taking hold of Christ”;
the second, “Keeping hold”;
and the third, “Not letting go.”

Keep holding on, just one more hour
May bring to thee the promised power;
O Keep holding on, thy Lord doth care-
He’ll not forget to answer prayer.
~~William C. Poole

Hold on . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
