“In your patience possess ye your souls.”
“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.”
I saw this little guy the other day.
The “awwh” factor was off the charts.
And it made me think about our struggles in life. How many of us are spiritually, emotionally and mentally limping along?
The persistence accompanies the patience we need. I know- neither sound fun. But there is a payoff to hanging in there:
“For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.”
You’ve heard about the importance of attitude. And that enters into the struggle issue big time. What if, instead of despair, we had hopeful glory about our circumstances?
I know. Tall order. Nevertheless, there is good news, even as we may limp along…
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Never, never, never give up! You ARE getting there!
