I recently listened to a young man share his testimony and he said a phase that stuck with me, “I felt like throwing in the towel.” I guess I have heard this phase many times before, but this time it stuck with me. When times are hard and it looks like we can't make ends meet, we might want to throw in the towel.

If you are a boxing fan you will be very familiar with the phase, “throwing in the towel” As a symbol that they were giving up or had had enough, the team that was losing would throw in the towel for its fighter, indicating that they had had enough and were going to accept defeat rather than carry on and risk damaging their fighter.

When we don't think that we can win, and a loss looks a grim inevitability, we might want to throw in the towel and give up.

Galatians 6:9 Paul encourages the church by sayings, “Let's not get tired of doing what is good, for at the right time we will reap a harvest-if we do not give up.”

All I can think of is a farmer who has planted all his fields with corn and one day later he goes out and waters his corn only to notice that his corn hasn't come up, and then he throws in the towel and says, “ I give up on waiting for this corn to come up.”

What is his problem? He isn't enduring the time it takes for the corn to sprout and come up.

Jesus complemented the church at Ephesus by saying; “You have endured, suffered trouble because of my name, and have not grown weary. ( Revelations 2:3)

They hadn't thrown in the towel because of the hardships they were having to endure because they were Christ followers.

We throw in the towel only when we are defeated. We give up when we feel we can't win. This is why we give up on our rebellious teenagers, we throw in the towel in our marriages, we give up on our friends who is caught in the grip if addiction, we throw in the towel at our jobs and walk out saying things are never going to change.

Throwing in the towel can be the defining quality of may of our lives even as Christians.

Thomson Edison did not exactly discover the bulb but improved it. Before Edison's experiment, the problem was that the bulb had a very short lifetime. He had to find a filament that would glow for a much longer time than before. In 1879, after performing 6,000 experiments on different materials, he observed that a carbon filament lasted the longest.

What if Thomas Edison had thrown in the towel? I do not know if I could have endured 6000 experiments, but we are all thankful today because he did.

We should also have hearts of gratitude to Jesus because he did not throw in the towel either.

“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
( Hebrews 12:2-3 )

Father we have to admit we have thrown in the towel to soon many times because we felt that victory was beyond our grasp. Jesus has given us an example in himself that we should not throw in the towel and give up because there is always hope and victory is assured. Father forgive us for giving up on those in our churches and families also. We know that you have never and will never throw the towel in and give up on us, so help us to do the same

“The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.”
George Mueller

Faith brings peace.
Worry brings turmoil.
Faith draws you closer to God.
Worry takes you from God.
Faith changes things.
Worry changes nothing

Dear Brother,
My heart goes out to you in the loss of your Dad. I lost my Dad a few years back, and my mom last April. I want you to know that god will give you grace during this hard time. I really felt the leading of the Spirit to send you the 2 pictures yesterday. You are safe in the Father God's arms, and He loves you very much.

Father God will you touch my Brothers heart today and comfort and console him in the loss of his father? Will you help him to know that you are there for him through the grief , and through his tears.

Dear God help us to remember that one day there will be no more death ans sorrow and mourning will be no more. Jesus wept when he saw the grief of Mary and Martha over the loss of their brother, so we find comfort in the fact the Jesus our savior understand how hard it is for us to loose those we love to death. Father all we can do is to come to you and allow you through the power of the Spirit bind up our broken hearts. Thank You for you love and grace that you show us each day, In the name of Jesus, Amen

hello, here's a joke to cheer you up-

A woman walks into a butcher's shop just before closing time and asks, "Do you have any turkey?"

The butcher opens his fridge, takes out his only turkey and puts it on the weighing scales. It weighs six pounds.

The woman looks at the turkey and at the scales and asks, "Do you have one that's a bit bigger than this one, please?" The butcher puts the turkey back into the fridge and then takes it out again, but this time when he puts it on the scales he keeps his thumb on the turkey. The scales now show eight pounds.

"That's wonderful," says the woman. "I'll take both of them, please!"

(Ha ha ha.... gotcha butcher!)
