Bread for the Journey

Hang in There!

And I am sure of this, 
that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1:6 ESV

It seems that every time I walk through the garden, I inadvertently damage a spider's intricate work of art.  And here is what I have observed...the spider immediately begins the work of repairing it.  There is no giving up and packing it in!

Storms will come our way throughout life.  At times it is hard to continue the journey.  But God has promised to complete the work He has begun in my life and in your life. 

No matter how tattered and torn the tangled web of  our lives may be...He can see us through to the end!

 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, 
for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, 
which God has promised to those who love him. 
 ~ James 1:12 ESV
