What is your deal?
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. ~John Quincy Adams~
Success in any worthwhile endeavor does not come overnight. Stay focused on your vision, and don’t allow obstacles to deter you from your goal. Have faith in the end result to be achieved from your efforts, and with patience and perseverance, you will most assuredly see it made manifest in your life.
Thought for the day
Well, you hear it all the time; you need to have a vision, a focus for your life, something to strive for, live for and die for. I want to be a godly man, how about you? What is your deal?
Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing. ~James 1:3,4 (Amp)~
Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character…And character of this sort produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope… ~Romans 5:3,4 (Amp)~
Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise…
~Hebrews 10:35,36 (NKJV)~
