We live in a world today where nothing seems to last. Our automobiles wear out…the engine goes and it just stops running.
Many people thought that they would be retiring from their company after many years of working but their job ran out.
So many people today are running out on their marriages. Things aren’t going well and the pressure is overwhelming. Many make the decision to opt out. That couple you know who has been married for 20 years calls it quits. It doesn’t even shock us anymore.
More and more things are becoming disposable:

What about you? What about your commitment to Jesus? Will you keep on serving him, loving him and living for him? What about when things get rough and life deals you a bad hand? What about when all hell breaks loose and you can’t make sense of anything happening in your life?
Philippians 1:6 says, “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus.”
I have been at the point of exhaustion, burn out and complete total frustration. Who hasn’t been at this point?
All of us have come to the same fork in the road where we ask, “What will we do? Will we give in, give up, let go, lay down and play dead or will we rise up, take that situation by the throat and say ‘no,’ I will not go out like this. I will not visualize the regret of failure, I will visualize the reward of success for staying in the game. My commitment will last, my love will last, my determination will last!”
