Never Give Up -- a poem by Joel Magnes, Christian Science Practitioner

Sometimes on our journey, we reach a point where just giving up seems to make sense.  I offer this poem to anyone who is feeling that way.

Never give up

by Joel Magnes

When it’s just too late,
and all is lost…
it’s not.

When you’ve tried and tried,
but you can’t go on…
you can.

When it’s all too much,
and you want to give up…
don’t.

Almighty God can find a way.
His will for you is life,
health, peace, plenty.
His love for you is unconditional
and forever.

Whatever the condition –
no matter how much,
how long, how many,
no matter what “they” say –
there still is hope
with God.

Open your heart to Him and listen.
And listen again.
Listen until you
hear His constant
Christ message of good.
Listen until His voice
is the only voice.

There’s nothing God can’t do,
nothing He can’t heal.
The message you hear
has infinite power
to lift you up
and overcome.
