Keep going…be steadfast and determined to find a way…don’t quit…don’t give up on them. With so much of the world focused on convenience and saving time there seems to be less and less stories about the long journey of success. The truth about most accomplishments is that they occur over a significant period of time. In athletics people will tell stories of an “overnight success” a player just emerged from out of nowhere. When the truth is that individual worked their tail off for the last 5, 10 or 15 years to get to that moment and the world just noticed them now. Hard work is expected to achieve anything. Dedication, commitment and a willingness to fail and try again, these are the things that lead to success. Especially in relationships and faith. If you or someone you care for is struggling, start or keep on praying, don’t give up on the situation. The world and society throw people away all the time…be different, believe in hope and God will restore the situation one way or another. May God bless you with courage and strength.
“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
1 Peter 5:10
