You may not surrender soon
But at one point you will
When you discover who you have become
Is disconnected with who you would have wanted to become
—Amy Elliott Dunne (Gone Girl, 2014)
We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith, and He is the One who makes our faith complete. He suffered death on a cross. But He accepted the shame of the cross as if it were nothing because of the joy He could see waiting for Him. And now He is sitting at the right side of God’s throne (Hebrews 12:2).
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6).
