My Shortest Post Ever – 2 Words to Help You Today February 21, 2018


This is the time of year when so many people become sluggish. Schedules are hectic. The newness of the new year has worn off and the freshness of spring has not yet arrived. Weather is wearying. Illness is rampant. Christmas vacation has long since vanished and summer vacation seems far in the distance.

For all of you who have such thoughts and feelings (like we all do at times!) I share two simple words:


That’s it. Sometimes the greatest thing you do is simply put one foot in front of another. Be faithful. As the old retired marine in our church used to say, “Stay at your post of duty.”


God has His eye on you. His ear is open to your prayer. His hand is upon you. His arm is strong to carry you through. His thoughts are toward you. His heart is to “give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11).

God is not finished and neither are you. Don’t quit before the breakthrough! Seasons come and go. This too shall pass.

The soft, inviting sand in the bottom of most wadis appears to be an ideal place to pitch a tent for the night. However, the wise camper will instead spend the night on the high ground, despite the rocks and thorn bushes. Wadis, such as this one in Jordan, can be deceptive.
