As 2015 winds down, many of us may find ourselves completing yearly responsibilities or positions we’ve held. I’m reminded of the importance of a strong finish as our work or term expires. The apostle Paul exhorts us saying, “… let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” (Hebrews 12:1b, NIV) With the demands of the Christmas season it’s tempting to give up or not give our best. My prayer for you is encouragement and empowerment to complete the task before you, and for you to experience the blessing of presenting your best to the Lord. Finish strong, girlfriend!
