Work and Wait

Perseverance.  A gift.

With all things we love, we can expect those very things to be attacked.  The greater the love, the greater the attack.  That I believe is why so many of us struggle in marriage and struggle with family.  Imagine it this way … hard to get upset about those things where we are at best indifferent.  Easy to get upset about things around which we care a great deal.

Enter perseverance.

Perseverance simply says “Stick with it.”  It calls us to trust in God’s bigger story, in God’s larger truth.  It moves us beyond the fog of emotion, distortion, anxiety, and obsessiveness and simply says “work” and “wait.”

Perseverance brings us home.

    thanks for the words of inspiration! Sometimes we cannot see all the good work we have done when we are in the middle of it.

    When we dig a little bit deeper into something that is troubling us we soon run out of steam – come up empty. When we come up empty, there is only one way to fill the void. It is very frustrating. We do not have all the answers. We have to elevate our beliefs, accept that we do not have all the answers, trust that our comfort comes from one that is superior to us. Trust in Him. Peace soon follows.
