iBelieve

Jesus said to her, " I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" She said to him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world." John 11:25-28

Perseverance


Perseverance is as unique as each individual.

As well as many other women, I am infertile.  I persevere to find meaning in life as a non-mother, while other women may persevere the legal hoops and red-tape to be an adoptive parent. Neither reaction is wrong, but we continue to persevere.

People diagnosed with cancer persevere to live one more day while researchers and doctors persevere to find a cure. A baby learning to walk perseveres each new step stronger than the last. The alcoholic perseveres sobriety. Mother Teresa persevered a lifetime of feeling that God had abandoned her.

Perseverance is as unique as we are unique to each other. If you notice someone having a rough day, go easy on them. You never know what they are in the middle of persevering.

James 1:4 NIV

Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
