Author, speaker, and founder of Living Proof Ministries Beth Moore recently encouraged Christians not to quit serving the Lord.
On Sunday, Moore posted a video to her Twitter account after working in her garden.
"Don't quit, y'all. Don't stop serving Jesus," Moore wrote in the caption of her tweet.
"I'm heading back to my house after tending to my vines and tending to my garden, and the sun's going down on this gorgeous Lord's Day," Moore said in the video, "and I just feel so moved in my spirit to say to somebody this evening, 'Don't stop serving the Lord.'
"I know that there are lots of frustrations and discouragements and a lot going on in some of our churches," she added, "but I'm going to tell you something. You may need to go somewhere else and do something different in service to the Lord, but don't, don't stop, don't quit," she asserted.
"We're gonna get one glimpse of his face, and all we're going to be able to say is, 'You are so worthy. Worthy are you Lord.'"

ChurchLeaders.com reports that Moore elaborated on this message in a subsequent Instagram post.
"If you don't think your vinedresser notices when you produce some fruit after a hard season, think again," she captioned a picture of a cluster of grapes. "He knows the winter you've had. Come on out. Risk it again. Don't compare yourself to your fellow branches. Just bask in the light and living water and grow, baby, grow. It is to your Father's glory that you bear much fruit and show yourself to be Christ's disciple," she concluded.
Earlier this year, Moore released her book memoir, All My Knotted-Up Life, in which she highlights God's faithfulness in her life through her childhood and as an adult. She also recounts being sexually abused by her father and her time in the Southern Baptist Convention.
