I've got five minutes before I have to leave for work. Five minutes of time to put down on this blog where my thoughts have been roaming the past few days.
It seems both my husband and I have been learning the word perseverance lately. Now, it really isn't my favorite word. Nor is it a word I would wish on anyone.
But after going through these past couple of years, I've learned to appreciate its meaning so much more. But what I will really appreciate is the other side of the word. The day I get to say I persevered and made it through. The day I can stand up and and share with others how God saw us through the worst of trials.
With my writing, I'm finding that now is the time to persevere there as well. During this time when I have some fulls out and when I'm thinking I'll never have time to devote all I want to learning the craft. The time when I start telling myself that maybe I've wasted all these years and there won't ever be that other side.
We're all persevering through something now, whether it be financial or family issues or a job situation. We get up each day, drop our feet to the floor, and do it.
I start my morning with heavy prayer. How do you persevere?
