2 Timothy 4:7-8

7 I have found a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Paul knew the end of his days was approaching..and when we look at verse 7

He wants us to see his undying faith..he had fought the good fight..finished the race..and kept the faith..he knew a reward awaited him in heaven..He wanted us to see that the way to a successful life..and a reward in the hereafter..was to keep the faith

We must realize that in good and bad times how important it is to keep the faith.

Facing the storms of life can be trying to ones faith..but without faith how can you survive.

When weeks ago I was diagnosed with esophagus cancer..it could have been devastating..with out my faith and knowing there is a purpose in all God allows.

Our very first trip to the Cancer Center brought me in contact with an ex member of the church with lung cancer..I prayed for him and ministered to him realizing …that this was not a chance encounter.

But Gods plan.

I continue to pray for him and others suffering from cancer..accepting Gods will.

We all need to take time and realize how short life really is..it helps us to not forget that every breath..every breath is allowed by the will of God

Like the Apostle Paul our trust in Jesus should never waiver

Lord I totally surrender to you.

Remembering that life is short..and you alone control its length

Help me keep the faith..standing strong against my flesh and this world..being true to the end

In Jesus name..Amen
