Tireless Persistence

From Hebrews 12:1-2:  “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Facing challenges

Darkest, stressful times

Feeling need to flee

Days no longer rhyme

 

Cresting floodwaters

Race seems lost, no doubt

Overwhelming doom

Path blocked, no way out

 

Inner voice speaking

Quitters never win

Winners never quit

Life’s new road begins

 

Looking to Jesus

Faith’s firm cornerstone

Enduring His fate

Never feel alone

 

Hearing His message

Persistence wins out

Yielding victory

Timeless turnabout

From James 1:12:  “Blessed is anyone who endures temptation.  Such a one has stood the test and will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.”
