God promises to finish the good work he began in us—but that doesn't come without bumps in the road. Life can be hard, faith can wane, and distractions abound. Too many today are at risk of compromising their integrity or giving up on their faith. How can we persevere to the end?
Trillia Newbell, a fellow struggler on the journey, offers encouragement and hope for us to run the race well. While life may be full of challenges, we have a true and real hope in Jesus, who provides us with what we need to endure through pain and doubt. Newbell shares theological insights and practical disciplines to train us for faithful, godly living over the long haul.
The race is hard, but you are not running it alone. Find strength and courage here to endure and finish well.
"This is the best book on endurance I have ever read. As I began, I knew this book was going to be different—Trillia Newbell has given us something that is deeply wise, practical at every turn, and laden with illuminating illustrations. Again and again she points us to Jesus and reminds us each time that the hope for our endurance is not found in our faithfulness but rather made possible because of his. You don't have to dread the race ahead; you can look at the road ahead with anticipation and hope. This book will tell you why."
"The longer I live, the more I want to finish the Christian race well and hear the words, 'Well done, good and faithful servant.' Trillia Newbell's newest book, Sacred Endurance, offers practical and personal encouragement to faithfully live the Christian life, daily looking to Jesus. Amid life's hardships and struggles, her words will refresh your soul and spur you on in the race."
