It’s something you and I always do. As Christians, we continue. We continue through difficult parts of life. We continue during times of infinite joy. We continue when we don’t feel secure in ourselves. We continue through mundane daily chores. But most importantly, we continue with Christ.

This poetry is for you.

For the ordinary, yet extraordinary-through-Christ, human.

It’s for those of us who burn our toast on Monday mornings. For those who persevere through rush-hour traffic. For those who attend Sunday services with little ones at their side. For those who simply, yet bravely, love Christ with their whole hearts.

For those in the day-to-day faith who just want to take one step forward.

I hope these poems and prayers give you the motivation to Continue.
