My Granny has a saying – “When life gets tough, pray…and do the next thing.” Which means we never give up, we forge ahead along this path on which God has set us. Each rejection, each critique, help us to refine our skill and continue to reevaluate how we can best glorify God.
Is this easy? Nope – but the process changes us to refine our skills and our perspectives.
Besides, we don’t put our faith squarely on our own shoulders, but on the One who knows our needs. His goal is to continually make us more like Himself. He also see the ‘big picture’ of our lives, so that whent he time is right – our writing will bloom to touch others.
Sometimes our journey is what touches people more than our writing every could. Perseverance is an act of faith. Action behind our trust that God is in control.
“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For in just a very little while,
”He who is coming will come and will not delay, but my righteous one will live by faith.
Monday – stop by for Purpose #4 – Patience (oooh, did anyone else cringe?) 🙂
