Keep Going-Wednesday Word

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 ESV

This is a picture from The New Yorker outside Amanda Berry’s home. She was one of the three women rescued in Cleveland, Ohio last week after a decade of captivity. For ten years she and the rest were stuck and all hope seemed to be lost. She stayed strong and waited for the right moment to escape. After ten years she is now free. What if she had given up on herself and the situation?

Along with the ‘missing’ poster you can see a ‘welcome home’ banner. You may feel right now that you are stuck in something. You may feel like you are bound in a situation that has no good end in sight. But stay strong. If Amanda Berry can endure captivity for ten years you can endure whatever God has allowed into your life. Don’t give up on yourself, your situation, or Jesus. Your victory celebration is on the way. Keep going.


  1. You forgot to mention that Amanda Berry and the other girls were raped and beaten for 10 years, not just imprisoned. Also, Amanda Berry's mother died during her abduction.

  2. no that is the point they did not give up or give into loosing hope that somehow they would be found & set free someway & that day came for all of them would anybody say that could have endured what they did? yes its heartbreaking that Amanda berry mom died she worried herself so much so because she did not have the answer was her daughter alive? that is something that a mother feels
