  1. Hi, what an amazing message you brought today Bobby about grit and hard work. I always get something out of your teachings, praise God.

    I live in New Zealand and on Sunday’s Hour of Power is on two different channels at different times, so I can rewatch it for free.

    I have four adult children, three are married and one is with a long time partner. They all have children, which means I have 10 grandchildren. They are all a blessing but I’m sorry to say as of today non of them declare that Jesus is their Lord. This is not to say that God isn’t working in their lives. It is interesting to watch my family as they all have struggles, not all at the same time but I thank the Lord that they all are enduring their troubles. For me I was not that faithful or willing to endure the tough times. God has taught me alot over the last four years, especially about endurance.

    It was good to hear your message as the world does make passion the number 1 thing to go after. My son is a very good golfer, he has a natural talent and could have been a world player but he would not put in the hard yards to train. Now he is a teaching pro golfer and works with younger people and has learnt that endurance is the key.

    Thank you for today’s message.

    1. Hi Jayne,

      Thank you for your kind words and sharing a little bit of your story with us! We’re glad you enjoyed Bobby’s message and hope you can continue to be encouraged by it even today. We pray and hope that all of your children and grandchildren, if they have not already, will one day declare Jesus as their Lord. May He bless you and your family as you continue to endure the things He has called you to!

      God loves you and so do we,

      -Hour of Power Team
