"Perseverance must finish its work... For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant, it's blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed... Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial...

James 1:4, 11-12, 17-18

Isn't it good to know that, of His work in us (as is also true of His work through us while we are on this earth), there will come a day when He will say, "It is finished"? He will have winnowed all the chaff; only the good seed will remain; the I will be slain, never to come to life again; the soul will bloom as perfect as a flower.

My Father, we pray that you settle this in our NEEMA girls hearts today... You have chosen only good for them! We pray that they believe it, and live in that peace today.
