"Never Give Up"
by Claire

Never give up
I became a Christian nearly 5 years ago, GOD decided to step in after my older brother had passed away 6 months prior. I remember having a conversation about GOD with my daughter and at that moment I said “I will start going to church when I’m around 80” GOD was definitely listening because two weeks later Holy Ghost arrested me, which was great because I needed him for what came later..

GOD delivered me from years of smoking and drinking (five years sober this month)... However, from the time my older brother passed away of renal failure in April 2014 a part of my mother died too, I went from being the middle child to the eldest living child, making sure mum was alright checking on the youngest brother as well as being a mother of a 15-year-old beautiful daughter.

 Mum tried to keep things going but had a lot of guilt, (my older brother was a sickler, meaning to have the sickle cell trait).
She would often say if only she knew she carried the trait but back then in the 60s  checks were not done on black/ethnic women... Then in May 2015 my uncle passed away of dementia my mums brother so that was blow number two, leading her to stress and worry about us a bit, even tho we would tell her enough times we were fine.

Then we started to notice she would say things like “ I called you today”  and “ have you done that thing I asked you to do”... She knew things were not right but never wanted to worry us, but we were already on the case myself and brother.

GOD stepped in and got help for us expressly I could see why I was arrested by him because I needed him to clear my mind to make decisions to become the head of the family.

She is now settled, living in a beautiful home. Most people would give up when seeing their loved ones go through horrendous things. It wasn’t easy, there were days I wanted to give up, but JESUS kept pulling me back.

I know GOD is not done with me there is something great ahead, hold on to GOD if I can get through that then you can get through yours; DON'T GIVE UP!

The God of Hope

Wishing and hoping in people, events, and circumstances is not real hope. Real hope springs from absolute faith in God and His promises. 

Rom 15:13: "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
