Don't Quit


When things go wrong,
As they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile,
But you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must,
But Don't You Quit!

Life is strange with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up through the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup
And he learned too late when the night came down
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem the worst
That You Mustn't Quit!

(I WAS DYING...)
First I was dying to finish high school and start college.
And then I was dying to finish college and start working.
Then I was dying to marry and have children.
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough so I could
go back to work. But then I was dying to retire.
And now, I am dying . . . And suddenly I realized I forgot to live.

Please donít let this happen to you.  Appreciate your current situation and thank God for the good and bad in your life. If you are living for God, your current situations are working for good.  Remember that everyday is a day of thanksgiving. Give God the praise for what He is doing in your life right now. Perhaps something is amiss or has gone awry, but the Lord is still in charge and He has promised never to leave you nor forsake you. The song declares that, "This Too Shall Pass", because God is working it out for you.  While you are in the now, God is in the NOT YET!!!
