My dear Jack,
I woke up this morning thinking about you, your circumstances and challenges. I know you spent yesterday putting out fires. Your faith was really stretched but somehow you survived! Whew! There are one or two opportunities out there and you need that one deal to come through, at least to relieve some pressure. But things seem to be slow moving and even dependent on one or two things. You know I read something from Hemingway. He said courage is grace under pressure. When I think of you that statement comes to mind.
Don’t be afraid. Nothing lasts. Keep going. Keep hoping. Keep moving. Be steadfast. Your faith will see you through. Someday we’re going to look back at this time and thank God for this season of trial. It will be how you got to build your faith. Don’t forget: courage is grace under pressure. See you tomorrow!
Your mentor. LA
PS. Don’t forget to give! Now I don’t know why I said that but don’t hold back. You won’t come up short! You won’t be disgraced!
