He said in the NAZI concentration camp, there was a group of prisoners of war who continued to survive despite the beatings and torture, whose spirit couldn’t be broken. They were soldiers. The NAZIs showed them the drawings of a plan for new living quarters for the men. They dug trenches and shovelled and worked hard even though they were so malnourished and weak. They managed to get the land cleared in less than a week. At the end of that week, the NAZIs told them there was never an intention to build and their next job was to shovel all the sand back into the holes they had dug up.
This job was never completed and all but a handful of these ex-soldiers died. They had lost hope.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.”Proverbs 29:18
Today is the start of a new week. If you are feeling tired and drained already, or maybe you’re going through a dry season… Be Inspired!! We have a hope in Christ! He is going to do something in you and through you today, this week, if you are willing!
But those who HOPE in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
