Perseverance

This morning I went for a run. The wind was howling and the rain was lashing and I must admit there were moments when I would have like to have stopped. But it was important to me to keep going and not give up. Often we give up just when we are nearly there, in our work, our personal life or whatever. This video shows us that we should never give up (though sadly the whole event was probably caused by the drone operator scaring the bears)

I also love the song by Mandisa called”Overcomer”. The lyrics are great and a reminder to not give up however hard things are. And for many things truly are hard- if they are for you now I pray you will find strength to keep going.

Persecuted Christians around the world suffer everything from death threats; torture and beatings through to ostracism and rejection. For the 50-70k christians held in labour camps in North Korea it can be a life and death situation. It takes a lot to be an Overcomer in such a situation. But they have a higher call in their lives , one who they believe is worth it all. And when you’re struggling it means so much to know there are others there supporting you and willing you on, that you’re not alone…

I am thrilled to report I’ve nearly sold out of cards with 90% gone. Do let me know if you are still interested in buying any as I can order more. I know some were interested in the cross ✝️ card for Easter but maybe I should have a sunrise one too for the Resurrection (two suggestions though the bottom one is a sunset)! So let me know so I can gauge interest. Thanks.

Thanks as ever for your interest and support.

Turning 60 is a door to a new decade. I want to use these years positively, starting with the next one. So I want it to be a year of trying different things as well as familiar one and to do a couple of challenges. 60 things at 60 with the aim of raising £6 000 for the charity Open Doors, serving persecuted Christians around the world, many who live with very little. Would you be part of the adventure with me?
