“Hang in there.”
“Keep on fighting.”
“You can do it, don’t quit!”
Ever hear any of those comments, or anything similar?
I am interested in hearing from you all on this one…
I have written two blog entries on the matter of perseverance. Neither have been posted. The basic just of what they say is this.
I am not good at it, I believe the western culture is bred against persevering, and I believe many of us are out of touch with what it even means.
My sickness is a lack of trusting God when I am uncomfortable.
Where is my resolve?
I would love to say, “I won’t give up when it gets hard” but I don’t think that is really true. I think I make the excuse that if it is difficult that is a sign that God is closing the door on that venture.
That doesn’t seem right…
That doesn’t seem like faith…and so how does a lack of perseverance connect to faith?
As I have said, I have written two entries on this and sort of feel like a dog chasing its tail.
So, what have you noticed? What have you seen of perseverance in our culture (good, bad, or ugly)? How strong can a faith without perseverance be? I am interested in hearing from you.
