Don't Give Up Don't Ever Give Up

As a young child I use to watch cartoons as most kids do. One of my favorite cartoons was the one where the coyote would chase the roadrunner and fail everytime. Oh man did I love that show, now looking back at it I can really honor the will power that coyote had. Even through all the pain and anguish he would go through day after day he would never give up. Day after day he would pick him self up again and keep going. In many ways we can try and be like that coyote. Everyday we go through hard times. Will we be like the coyote and keep going? Or will we just call it quits and go home? As you live life many trials and afflictions come your way. Its easy to be discouraged and its easier to just give up than to pick your head up and keep going. Often times when your stuck in a trial you feel alone. But your never alone you always have someone there to help you out. Those people are  Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. If we put full trust in them they will get us through any trial. In Alma 38:5 it says "And now my son, Shiblon, I would that ye should remember, that as much as ye shall put your trust in God even so much ye shall be delivered out of your trials, and your troubles, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day." And I have learned that Almas right. If we put that trust in our Heavenly Father we can make  it through anything. its suddenly not as diffucult to pick your head up and keep pressing on. We just cant ever give up. We all can be like the coyote and never give up. Go into everyday with a sureness that we can make it through anything with just faith in Jesus Christ and Our Heavenly Father. In the words of the late great Jimmy V " Don't give up don't ever give up "
We must always pick our heads up and keep pressing on with a steadfastness in Christ and never give up. We must all press on. Never giving up hope that we will make it through our hard times. "For our light affliction which is but for a moment worketh for us a far more exceding and eternal weight of glory." 2 cor 4:17
