I just can't give up now!

Well, you all were saved from a really long blog! I accidentally marked a paragraph to move it, and I ended up deleting the entire blog.
Oh well. As I stated earlier, you were all saved from having to read a long-winded blog to get to the point. So, I'll just get to the point.
I was so tired today. I didn't get enough sleep, the cat pooped in the carrier when I brought him home from the vet...just one thing after another happened today and I was tired.
Finally at 4:00 p.m. I sat down to have some prayer time, and as I wrote, I was just filled with thankfulness. The cats are wearing me out, but I'm thankful that in order to care for them, I have to learn new habits, and that I'm learning patience as I wait lovingly for one of the kitties to come out of hiding.
After my time of prayer, I got some exercise in while I was doing some household chores. As I ran around, literally, a the chorus of a song performed by Mary Mary came to mind: "I just can't give up now; I've come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me the road would be easy but I don't believe He brought me this far to leave me."
And as I finished my exercise, instead of being tired, I was exhilarated! Wow! God is so faithful to show us what we need if we are open to hearing His voice.
So don't give up! Even if you haven't come very far yet, you will if you keep going!
