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.
