PERSEVERANCE

"I have brought you glory on earth by
completing the work you gave me to do."

JOHN 17:4

 
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, how many times have you felt like throwing in the towel? How many projects have you started but never finished? How many lives have you tried to touch but felt rejected? Are you frustrated? I was rejected, too, but I never gave up until I finished the work My Father assigned Me. Let Me strengthen and help you. It's never too late to start again. Let Me work through you, and I will stamp your life with My success.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
You are my example of perseverance, Lord. You started and completed your assigned mission. And because You suffered through pain, rejection, and misunderstanding, with Your help, I can make it through, also. Thank You for Your strength.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Life's greatest lessons are learned in God's school of perseverance.
