“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
The devil is coming at me harder than ever trying to get me to quit, give up, shut down my ministry, stop moving forward, and keep me from going to the next place the Lord is sending me to do my streets ministry work and continue forward with my writing and publishing of Gospel tracts, devotionals, and books. He is coming at me from every side, and the battle is fiery and indescribably intense.
I’ve been having sinus infections / allergies every few weeks for some time now seemingly partly in response to secondhand smoke, two of my dogs have had health issues in a city in which I know nobody, the vet I found didn’t have the experience to address the main medical issue, my vet in SC is recommending I return there for help and training for future occurrences, there have been multiple safety issues at my current hotel God willing now resolved, I am exhausted, I am facing unbelievable challenges working on the logistics of health insurance and residency given I am on the road full-time, the obstacles I face in getting to my next location seem insurmountable, I still need so very many more monthly sponsors and donors than I currently have, and it would be incredibly easy for me to just call it quits. Those, by the way, are just some of the challenges!
That said, my love for the Lord is greater than ever, my relationship with Him is more intimate and beautiful than ever, my excitement to press on in my ministry work is greater than ever, and my resolve to NOT QUIT but to PERSEVERE in the LOVE AND STRENGTH OF THE LORD is greater than ever!
Huge help is needed.
I am in ENORMOUS need of very strong ongoing PRAYER.
I am also in ENORMOUS need of more MONTHLY SPONSORS.
Please would you join me as the Lord leads you in PRAYER and GENEROSITY as I press on?
PS For those who do not know, I am currently in Wilmington, NC for a short time where the Lord sent me to spend time in His presence with the Word, seek Him, rest, write, and work on logistics for my next location as He prepares me for the next big ministry location.
