HOLD ON, HOLD UP & HOLD OUT
There are things in life you wish you never got into. And maybe you should get out of. However, there are things of value you should never let go like truth, values and good manners. But sometimes things like study and goals setting don't pay right away. These things take time and so the only way to move forward is to hold on to them.
There are sometimes too that despite all your strength you cannot find a bright light to show others the way. At such times there is no human reason or to support your hope or ground your belief. When science fails and nothing else will make sense. When what you know does not appear to be true, the only way to get relief is to hold up your faith to God, and let him to be the reason you do what you do.
When you have done these two, you will find that you have to do the third one too. Now that you commit and then you believe, you must now hold out until you receive. It is so easy to give up when the race is in the middle. There is a long way to go. The beginning is easy. Everyone starts and everyone is in the race. The end crowns heroes and champions, but it's the middle that thins out the crowd. To win you must finish. Only those who hold out will ever find out what the human race is about.
