Don't Ever Give Up

You know, it's funny. I woke up this morning feeling a little heavy. An outstanding, not-so-hopeful-looking issue weighed on my mind. I felt like maybe God was tired of helping me... I seem so (spiritually) needy these days. I sure was frustrated with me. Why wouldn't he be?

I logged on to Twitter. Just to tweet a word or two before zapping off to work. One of my friends posted this link. And it grabbed me. It held me, threw God's arms around me. I just want you to know that you can finish strong too. And God will be there for you - so don't ever give up!!

Endearingly beautiful, the bond between father and son and the passionate tenacity of that amazing athlete are poignantly powerful and so inspiring. Thank you for sharing this :)

Ruthie!! You are so inspiring!U am writing this through glistening tears running down my cheeks. I am going through 'crap' right now and basically I am in the 'valley' of my life right now and fighting to make things better and it's not working...So I am resting, doing nothing and I know that's when God is going to wrap his everloving arms around me and fix things! I know the minute I stop frustrating myself things will fall into place... Can a sista get a amen? Yeah!! Thanks for posting that video.
