Have you taken so many losses this year that you are not ready to win more battles for the Lord? After all, don't we sing "Oh victory, in Jesus!" My prayer for YOU and ME is to remain steadfast. In this world, we WILL have trouble; Jesus told us so. But my Bible also says, “rejoice always.” In this season and out of season, through the love and life of Christ, position your heart to be ready to rejoice.
