Perseverance ((From the archives))

Getting rid of the pity party and learning to encourage myself is the hardest thing of all
But with my back leaning, I remember God asks us to dig deep
I stand up, do an about face, and turn my face against the wall
Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ, Second Timothy Chapter 2 Verse 3

The devil comes to steal, kill, & destroy. He desires to hurt me; sift me as wheat
Longsuffering can be defined as long and patient endurance of injury
With God’s iron will, I’m a chisel against the grain, the devil cannot stop me
Since Jesus already prayed for my endurance, I owe him as much to keep persevering

As horrendous as life can be, it is so easy to choose to give up
But you got this, just keep on keeping on, and hold your head up
As gruesome as the cross was, not even Jesus passed over his cup
Wait upon the Lord renew your strength, pick up your wings, and mount up

Remember to wait on the Lord and be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart
I hope the importance is made evident in the words that I impart
