Love, Perseverance, and Jesus

Love

Perseverance

Jesus

There are 196 verses in the Bible on perseverance.  God knew life wouldn’t always be easy.  Nor will it always be hard.

We don’t always know what God will do.  We try so hard to forumlate Him.  But, He is mysterious-and bigger, MUCH bigger than our minds can formulate.  We want to think, If I do this…….and this……then God will…………..(you fill in the blank).

But, here’s the thing…..His goal for us is not to give us everything we want…..or to make sure we are happy.  His goal for us is way beyond that!  Just as my fellow friend in ministry, Julie Richard, says about parenting  “don’t parent for the next 20 minutes, but for the next 20 years”–that’s what God does with us.  He sees what is on the other side of our circumstance.  He sees the reward that is coming for us as we persevere and become more like Him  He absolutely walks us through the earthly, but He parents us for eternity.  He sees what we cannot, and He acts accordingly.

I just want to say to my readers today, I love you, and you won’t be where you are forever.  Blessings on you as you love, persevere, and follow Jesus.
