Scriptures

I love you, LORD, my strength.  The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,  my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  (Psalm 18:1-2)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.  (Galations 6:9)

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.  (2 Corinthians 12:9)
