Memorial of Saint John Mary Vianney
IT IS ALWAYS TOO SOON TO QUIT
If you’re going through tough times and you are being tempted to quit, then, the story of the Canaanite woman is for you. She saw in Jesus, the salvation to her daughter’s condition! And she was determined not to give up until she got from Jesus what she was looking for! She was not going to take criticism or silence as an answer – she was simply persistent.
I do not know your situation but I do know one thing: It is always too soon to quit. We must hold on to our faith. Faith can and will conquer. You are never a failure until you quit, and it’s always too soon to quit. Please keep waiting for the morning.
Lord Jesus, so many times I feel like giving up and yet I know that in life, giving up on good dreams and ideals is not an option. Give me the courage to persist in faith until I receive your favor. Amen.
