I was taught that the way of progress is neither swift nor easy.
In today’s drive-through society, it’s often difficult to develop the patience and steadfast endurance that is required for lasting achievement. We tend to expect immediate results and instant gratification. Any new idea or worthwhile endeavor generally entails much testing, trial and error. Learn to look at each setback and problem encountered, not as failure, but as that which takes you one step closer to ultimate success. Be patient and consistent in your efforts, and you will see the victory.
Thought for the day
We do not strive for progress and accept failure. We strive for perfection and accept progress. Setting right, by action, what has taken decades to deform (ourselves) can be a daunting task if we look at all that we need to accomplish. Fortunately we do not this major work alone; we have God, our sponsor and those who have traveled this road before us. Thankfully all we have is today, so my question to you and to me is; at the end of the day will we see progress and feel a spirit of faith and determination or will we see failure and feel a defeated spirit of indifference.
You know how we call those blessed (happy) who were steadfast [who endured]. You have heard of the endurance of Job, and you have seen the Lord’s [purpose and how He richly blessed him in the end]…
~James 5:11 (Amp)~
So I say to you, Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you; seek and keep on seeking and you shall find; knock and keep on knocking and the door shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened.
~Jesus (Luke 11:9,10 Amp)~
