Victory doesn’t always look how we thought it would: sometimes the victory is the seed that falls to the ground and dies for new life to be born. Some rewards only come after faithfulness. An old preacher used to say, “Without battles, there is no victory.”
This is not the end. Keep not quitting for today at least.
Small acts of faith are still acts of faith.
Keep not quitting: holding fast in the face of the storms and the silence and the sorrow is its own sort of victory.
