Come to Me, all who are weary
and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest . . .
for My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Matthew 11:28, 30
Every achievement worth remembering is stained with the blood of diligence and scarred by the wounds of disappointment.
To quit, to run, to escape, to hide---none of these options solve anything. They only postpone the acceptance of, and reckoning with, reality.
Churchill put it well: "Wars are not won by evacuations." . . .
Giving thought to giving up?
Considering the possibility of quitting? . . .
Don't! . . . The only time the Lord ever used the word "easy" was when He referred to a yoke.
