The first meaning of PERSEVERANCE– steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. So what is the second meaning? – not giving up being persistence and starting something until the end no matter the difficulty.
So the last phase of journey of life is something I face everyday. It’s difficult to stay focus and to complete a task- (such as blog/writing) it can seem so hard and your mind begin to wander so you can’t think of ideas of where to begin. It gets discouraging but I know I must keep striving- I can’t stop now even if it seems so far away so I keep going despite it all. You would ask what keeps me striving well its FAITH.
Yes that’s right I’m back to the beginning of the journey the word that lead me on this path. The reason I said FAITH is because despite my doubts, and low moments- I knew through it all God had never failed me. Without it I would not be at the coming of age and discovering who I am in this journey.
So Faith is a need for PERSEVERANCE, but its only effective when we depend on God and know what his son Jesus Christ did on the cross. For me there are no doubts on this second journey- I must stay the line I knew better before and I better know now. I will not turn away.
So PERSEVERANCE is a daily part of our life and a constant to keep striving despite how it looks and no matter the STORM that comes our way, keep the FAITH and strive forward.
“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
