Faint Not …

My Dad knows concrete. He has been doing that work for close to 40 years.  He has a lot of experience and can do whatever kind of custom walk or patio addition that you have planned.  He is the best there is.

During one of my visits home I drove up as my Dad was cleaning one of his tools.  It looked like some kind of bug spray can. I asked him what it was for and he told me that he sprays this chemical on the forms so that when the concrete is poured into the forms, the boards won’t stick to the slab during the curing process.

I can’t remember exactly what chemical it was that Dad puts on those boards, but I can tell you that as a leader whether in your home or church you do need faith that repels whatever concrete gets splashed on you- when the project is over and it’s time to tear down and rest, you can rest without thinking about that negative stuff.

“He gives power to the faint, and to them that have no might he increases strength.”

-Isaiah 40:29

Remember that when push comes to shove you must recognize that God has your back.   This is a promise that if you as his son or daughter feel empty the Lord will fill you up.   He will give you what you need to repel the issues that tend to harden on you.  Continue to press through, it is worth the breakthrough-just keep going!

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. “

-Galatians 6:9

I was a young man who worked for a great organization "Forged by the Sea." Now I'm an old head kicking back on the east side; where the sun doesn't set. I'm a man who is pursuing his contributions to the world. I'm not perfect. In fact, a work in progress until Jesus takes me home. Philippians 1:6
