QUIT, DON’T QUIT! When things go wrong


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but do not quit.

Life is strange with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,

Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Edgar A. Guest


Dear God, on this occasion as I pause to read this prayer, I pray that something happens
in-between the words, deep inside of me.
I consent, and I am ready.
I pray for a spiritual experience.
I pray for something to happen in me, beyond just the experience of the daily material world.
I pray for a new soul beginning.
I pray for enlightenment.
I pray that I am touched so deeply that I am changed forever.
Thank You God!
In Jesus Christ’s name… Amen
