And, before you go…be strong.
You’ve spent countless hours in the weight room building your strength. Those hours helped you on the football field and enabled you to win wrestling matches your brothers.
But as you prepare to leave, I want to compel you to rely on a different strength. An unseen strength. An indwelling power. A strength that only comes from the One who is able to keep you from falling.
You will have challenges to your faith, your morals, to everything you know to be true. In those moments, be strong in the Lord.
You may not believe it now, but you may miss home and it’s conveniences and you may doubt your decision to leave. In those moments, be strong in the Lord.
I can’t predict all the situations you will face. However, whatever comes your way: “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.” Ephesians 6:10
