The Blue Jay & the Hawk! Never, never, never, never.. give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense..

From Rev. Mark H. Creech at christianpost.com

…Sometimes God's people find themselves in the grip of negative forces far superior to themselves. All hope may seemingly be lost – the end probable – no likely way to recover. It could be a health issue, financial problems, a failing marriage, a troubled or rebellious child, the demise of a dream, and the list goes on. It may be as it is for many conservative evangelicals, some Catholics, and many political activists who hoped to see a different result in this year's election, but now fear a righteous cause has irreparably failed.

Whatever the situation, take a lesson from a Blue Jay in the talons of a Hawk. Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight - fight no matter how great your foe - fight no matter how hopeless the circumstances seem – fight with every spiritual weapon at your disposal and never give up. For you never know whether or when or how God plans to intercede to supply the blessing, the deliverance, or the victory you seek. One thing is for certain, if you surrender you will be the enemy's lunch.

There are unquestionably dozens of similar examples of this principle in Scripture. [Joseph, Moses, the Disciples]

Winston Churchill ..: "You cannot tell from appearances how things will go. Sometimes imagination makes things out far worse than they are…But for everyone…surely…this is the lesson: Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never – in nothing great or small, large or petty – never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense…Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."
