Most of us have heard the phrase, finish strong. Often it is easier said than done. I don’t think this phrase should just be ascribed to retirement or the end of our lives. I really believe we can incorporate it into all our days. We can also apply it to raising our children, finishing projects, and a host of other real life scenarios.
There are times when we start things that seem harder to finish the longer we go. As time goes along, we can be tempted to check out or give up when the grind becomes tough. We might be tempted to quit early and take the credit for a great beginning instead of staying patient and pushing through to the finish.
Keep fighting and moving forward. Don’t give up without a fight. Allow God to be God and work through you and in you. Even if you fail, don’t quit. With God all things are possible.
And when you are done, you can say:
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. 2 Timothy 4:7 NLT
