Pop over and say hello

Perseverance is so imporantt, especially walking with Jesus. It is our hope that we cling to when life seems to be going against what God has shown us, but we persevere with faith and that sprinkles a few rays of sunshine into a stormy time. Love to you!!!

I was already there! Great post!

Shirl said...

Yes! I feel totally inadequate.

Feel like quitting? These days, only on days that end in Y, but I need to stay the course. Heading over to read your post.

Susan R. Mills said...

Heading over now. Can't wait.

I'll pop over there--but I love the banner on your blog! Thanks for stopping by The Ponderers' blog. Looking forward to reading your post.

I went over and read your guest post. It was so good, Terri. You are very inspirational! So many of us want to quit when things get rough. I just KNOW that your time is coming soon, I know it!
I was in prayer when the thought (Holy Spirit) was put on my heart to create a book of some of my blog entries and see if I can have it published. I am petrified at the aspect of doing this along with all the other stressors in my life. I am going to present this idea to my spiritual director and see what she thinks. Pray for me, dear friend, as I cannot move or live without prayer.

I thought I'd comment over here since I missed the party by one day! I certainly feel that writing, as in life, demands lots of perseverance. Only God knows where he will take us. I trust the journey will be a good one so long as it gives him glory.

I agree, we should never give up, or may something inside us keeps poking us every now and then after we give up.

Sometimes, life makes it nearly impossible to follow what you love doing. Then, you realise living the compromised life is not attractive either. No wonder they say, "we live but once".

That was a great article, Terri. I need to read it once a month!
Love

Hi Terri, the thought of quitting has entered my mind several times. But I tend to brush it aside.
