Do NOT lose heart in doing good, for in due time you will reap if you do not grow weary (Galatians 6:9)…
CONTINUE in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them (2 Timothy 3:14)…
Do NOT lose heart, though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16)…
BE strong and do NOT lose courage, for there is reward for your work (2 Chronicles 15:7)…
Though you may stumble, you will NOT fall, for the Lord upholds you with His hand. (Psalms 37:24)…
Where do you go next?
Don’t incarcerate [confine, imprison, detain, hold, lock up] yourself… by allowing what happened [in the past] to you… to control [influence, direct your behaviour/course of events] your future! This is just the beginning of developing an exciting journey of awareness, away from negativity and towards the goal of remarkable results which includes improving your prayer life daily.
