Don’t Give Up

Brian Holman, a former professional baseball pitcher, shared with our local Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast audience many personal challenges he had to walk through in his life, including the loss of a child.

In spite of all the trials, he clung to and promoted a mantra that helped him persevere. “Don’t ever give up. Keep striving for the prize. It’ll be worth it in the end,” he would say to his family, during their many challenges.

Paul wrote in Philippians 3:14, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

If you’re overwhelmed with challenges in your work or your family today, let me encourage you. Don’t give up! Keep striving for the prize God has waiting for you.
