Sometimes, perseverance is what is required: going the second mile, pressing further than you planned on, or wanted, or even signed up for. Your strength is strained, but the road before you is far from the finish line. Persevere!
Hebrews 12:1 – “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”
James 1:4 – “Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through him who gives me strength.”
