"Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain." ~1 Corinthians 15:58(ESV)

WHOA! What a GREAT and encouraging word for all of us today! I heard this statement and it has stuck with me forever, "You can tell the size of a Christian by what it takes to stop them." What are you allowing to stop you? My hope and prayer today for us all is that NO THING - nothing - stops us from growing and going forward in our purpose of this life that God has planned.

Many times we are given circumstances, emotions, and unexpected life issues, BUT we can't let the hurt or confusion stop you! Someone needs to hear this today. As I was meditating in just PRAISE and worship for God this weekend--I felt compelled to share with you - Don't quit - Don't stop - remember you are only defeated if you quit. I pray that we all feel the strength and confidence that God's Got it and HE will keep us steadfast in the quiet confidence in HIM!

I love all of you and am praying for you!

Livin' lively,
