" By perseverance the snail reached the ark."
~ Charles Spurgeon~
As a Christian family faith, belief and the love of the Lord has gotten us through many difficult times. At the same time the joy of knowing the Lord has not only filled our hearts but kept us focused on the gifts he has given us.
We have realized as parents that teaching our children about goals ,responsibility , and being a good Christians is not only our responsibility but an act of love. Setting ,maintaining and achieving anything in life takes perseverance. Everyone has interests in life but the ones who succeed are the ones who go beyond interest , taking an active role in their success. They say one of the keys is being like a postage stamp and sticking with something until you get where you are going.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of perseverance. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of education derelicts. Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
- Calvin Coolidge, thirtieth President of the
As they say the road is narrow and few will pass through. It is important to not only have our career, and life goals, but our spiritual goals mapped out as well. To realize there will be delays, and detours at times but we must have faith, belief, prayer , goals and the perseverance to see them through. There will be some that will never be happy nor in the Lord , having said that it is obvious then they won't want us to be. Even though we must pray for them, give them grace we have to move beyond them , persevere and make our own happiness goals and life in the Lord. The Lord is with us every step of the journey and we must never give up the race to be with him.
