If you are being hit from every side, I want to encourage you to not give up. Hold fast, my brothers and sisters. Do not cower and retreat, but press in. Do not get sidetracked with substitutes to distract you, but cling to Jesus as if your life depends on it… because it does. And not only your life, but the life of those in your household, and those around you.
The sky and the earth (the universe, the world) will pass away, but My words will not pass away. But take heed to yourselves and be on your guard, lest your hearts be overburdened and depressed (weighed down) with the giddiness and headache and nausea of self-indulgence, drunkenness, and worldly worries and cares pertaining to [the business of] this life, and [lest] that day come upon you suddenly like a trap or a noose; for it will come upon all who live upon the face of the entire earth.
Keep awake then and watch at all times [be discreet, attentive, and ready], praying that you may have the full strength and ability and be accounted worthy to escape all these things [taken together] that will take place, and to stand in the presence of the Son of Man. Luke 21:33-36
