Bible verses about quitting
As Christians we have all felt like we have wanted to quit before, but I learned even though at times we might feel weary there is something in us that won’t allow us to quit. The Spirit of the Lord won’t allow us to quit when things get hard. Stressful times like these is a time to build your prayer life. It is a time to get closer to the Lord and rest upon His grace. May these Scriptures be a blessing to you as they have been for me.
