Perseverance

 Did you ever reach a point in life where you are just at a point of “OK, now what to do with my life”?





As I think back on my life. I’m not too old but old enough. I have been through some of the most incredible moments in my life that I could only hope would last forever.  And then I have been through times when I could only hope that I could just move on to the next thing because I have had enough of that portion of my life.

1 There is a time for everything.
    There’s a time for everything that is done on earth. (Good and Evil)
2 There is a time to be born.
    And there’s a time to die.
There is a time to plant.
    And there’s a time to pull up what is planted.
3 There is a time to kill.
    And there’s a time to heal.
There is a time to tear down.
    And there’s a time to build up.
4 There is a time to weep.
    And there’s a time to laugh.
There is a time to be sad.
    And there’s a time to dance.
5 There is a time to scatter stones.
    And there’s a time to gather them.
There is a time to embrace someone.
    And there’s a time not to embrace.
6 There is a time to search.
    And there’s a time to stop searching.
There is a time to keep.
    And there’s a time to throw away.
7 There is a time to tear.
    And there’s a time to mend.
There is a time to be silent.
    And there’s a time to speak.
8 There is a time to love.
    And there’s a time to hate.
There is a time for war.

    And there’s a time for peace

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

 

PERSEVERE = Never give up, never quit, never surrender. Life is hard. It's never going to be perfect. Those who think they have everything, are bored lonely people. Count it a blessing that you have trials in your life. Trials give you the opportunity to PERSEVERE. From my experience is just when you think you have it all figured out, it will fall apart. That's an opportunity to PERSEVERE.

Through perseverance come challenges, which offer the opportunity for changes. Life never gets boring. When you think you're on top of the world, and you get your legs kicked out from underneath of you, find something else to put you back on top of the world again.

I am preaching to myself. I often think I have finally found the solution, only to have the solution fall apart after a short period of time. So I go find another solution that works again. That's what makes life "not" boring. It’s all in how you look at the situation.

Definitely for a time when you crash you are gonna think "what’s the use". We are human. But remember the word PERSEVERE and get up and push through it again. Never give up, never quit, never surrender.

WHAT WILL YOU WEAR TO THE CIVIL WAR PICNIC?

July 21, 1861, Washingtonians trekked to the countryside near Manassas, Virginia, to watch Union and Confederate forces clash in the first major battle of the  American Civil War . Known in the North as the  First Battle of Bull Run  and in the South as the Battle of First Manassas, the military engagement also earned the nickname the “picnic battle” because spectators showed up with sandwiches and opera glasses. These onlookers, who included a number of U.S. congressmen, expected a victory for the Union and a swift end to the war that had begun three months before. Instead, the battle that day resulted in a bloody defeat for the Union and sent the picnickers scrambling to safety. On July 16, federal forces led by Brigadier General Irvin McDowell began marching from the nation’s capital toward the strategic railroad junction at Manassas, some 30 miles away, where Confederate troops commanded by General  Pierre G. T. Beauregard  had amassed. Five days later, ordinary citizens—along with

So what were you "created to do"?

   We have been looking at it backwards. The part of scripture that says “nothing can separate us from the love of God”, has a whole new meaning to me these past few years.  Quit looking at what is stopping you from getting to what He wants in your life, and take capture of that thought. Then hit the “delete button”. You see, nothing can stop God from getting to you, and fulfilling His plan in your life. #sarcasmfreemessage

Who In The World Do You Think You Are?

A father said to his daughter “You graduated with honors, here is a car I acquired many years ago. It is several years old. But before I give it to you, take it to the used car lot downtown and tell them I want to sell it and see how much they offer you. The daughter went to the used car lot, returned to her father and said, “They offered me $1,000 because it looks very worn out.” The father said, ”Take it to the pawn shop.” The daughter went to the pawn shop, returned to her father and said, ”The pawn shop offered $100 because it was a very old car.” The father asked his daughter to go to a car club and show them the car. The daughter took the car to the club, returned and told her father,” Some people in the club offered $100,000 for it since it’s a Nissan Skyline R34, an iconic car and sought out after by many.” The father said to his daughter, ”The right place values you the right way,” If you are not valued, do not be angry, it means you are in the wrong place. Those who know your
