Perseverance is defined as a steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. It's a tenacious, unshakable, not-letting-go determination deep inside that says, despite what the natural circumstances might be screaming at me - I WILL NOT GIVE UP.
We know that suffering produces perseverance...
And perseverance produces character...
I pray right now that whatever you are facing in life, that HOPE arises within you. And as you read these words that you would know the hope to which you are called. :)
Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. :)
We have a great and precious promise. And as we persistently, resolutely and unwaveringly hold on to this we will surely see it come to pass! Let me encourage you today. You are making progress. You are taking ground. At times it may seem like you have been climbing forever and the mountain is getting bigger, but make sure you keep turning around as you're climbing.. to see just how far you have come. ;)
Have a wonderful day!
