Persistence

Perseverance…determination…patience…endurance…dedication…commitment.  Stay the course…don’t give up.  This is what it takes to find what you are looking for…no matter what it is.  Reflect on what you have been “thinking about doing,” what have you been “wishing were different” in your life…is it related to your finances?  Is it related to your weight?  Is it related to a relationship?  Your faith?  Something else?  Begin again and this time bring it to the Lord first, seek His wisdom and be persistent.  Amen.

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”

Galatians 6:7-10

    I needed this today, a reminder to seek God’s wisdom, to persist and not look for shortcuts. One of my favorite verses is Revelation 21:7: “Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.”
