In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37
Its never too late to become determined again.
You may have experienced failure, you may have been overwhelmed with discouragement and you may have quit from everything in your life, but TODAY you can receive His touch on your life and rise in a new level of determination. When you think its all over God comes in and says we haven’t begun yet.
Its never too late.
One day you will meet Christ face to face and I think we all will say:
“Jesus thank you for enduring so much. Thank you for being so determined to go to the cross. Because you remained in that place, you purchased my freedom, my sins were forgiven, my life transformed, you changed my world and guaranteed my eternity.”
