-verb (used without object)
To persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles or discouragement; continue steadfastly.
I had to look up the word in the dictionary because when depression tried to take a hold of my heart and mind and my spirit whispered “persevere”, all of a sudden my knowledge of the English language failed me.
I couldn’t for the life of me remember what persevere meant all I could think of was punishment, suffering, pain, stuff like that.
Well, here is the meaning in black and white; maintain purpose in spite of difficulty; in other words, even though it sucks and it hurts and you don’t like it one bit, keep at it because though it may tarry, the vision is for an appointed time
Life is not ruled by our definition of time in terms of days, months and years. Yes 12 months looks like a long time right now but then again is it? On average, my day rushes to a close and I can barely get done all the things that need to be done.
Put it all in perspective, a week, month or year from now, will this look as bad or big?
Either way, I trust all things to work together for good, because hey, that’s the only possibility at the end of the day!
