Ray Lammie again provides the Words for the Week from his Faith Thought for the Day.
Your struggle may be lasting but it is not everlasting. No one is immune to problems — but take heart — We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed, and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going (2 Corinthians 4:8,9 Living Bible).
Lammie was a successful business executive and entrepreneur in a nationwide business. After retiring in 2006, Ray pursued cancer support; business consulting, co-authored two books; numerous charity events and both played and managed amateur baseball. Among Ray’s most notable accomplishments was the launching of two Internet based projects; “Thought for Today” which targeted the business community with powerful, positive thought provoking thoughts and quotes, which later gave birth to the “Faith Thought of the Day”, a daily bible based devotional. Lammie survived cancer four times. He viewed every day as a precious gift and had no idea what the words “give up” meant. He believed some days were better than others, but chose not to have bad days. Ray was known for helping people believe in themselves. He died in 2009.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Whenever you feel sad, just remember somewhere in this world, there’s someone pulling a door that says “PUSH”.
