Give Up or Give In

There are times in our lives that can become a defining moment.  These, often times, can require life changing decisions that we must make. I am in the early stages of what could become a life changing situation.

Without going into long details, that basically only apply’s to me, I will give you the short version. I have had a lump on my lower leg for a while and it is getting slowly bigger. After some initial tests, I have heard the “C” word,,, Cancer ,,, and the “A” word,,, Amputation in the same sentence. Nothing for sure yet but it is out there. I can tell you that those two words really tune you in and get your undivided attention. I will know more over the next week,, but that is not the subject of this post.

So what are you going to do in these situations,,,, Give Up ??? Of course not,,, you are going to fight tooth and nail to beat whatever it is. You will redirect your energies to overcome whatever the obstacles may be. You are not a quitter !!!

This is all good,,, but never quitting and never giving up is a tall order and usually carries a heavy burden on a person. You have to have some support to overcome,,, that is when you have to Give In. Giving In is not Giving Up,,, it is finding support to help you carry on carrying on. Support that is always there and always knows what you are going through. Support that gives you peace so you can continue forward. Peace that releaves the burden so you know you are on the right track.

My support is the Lord Jesus Christ. Believe in him and ask him to help and he will take your burdens on and give you peace that will transcend any thing you have ever known.

He is real and can be real in your life. Ask him in, accept him and believe. He will not let you down !!!!!! I believe that with all my heart and soul !!!!!

    Being lucky enough to be raised in a small town, it seems that we always have that special connection for true concern & caring for our classmates well being. That said, we want you to know that along with the Lord you have our support & prayers as you face the challenging health issues ahead. God bless you, Larry. You are an inspiration to all of us with your website telling us never to give up our faith even in the darkest times.
    May Gods healing surround you.
    Rocky & Jan Smith
