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.
