The spirit of endurance

This weekend I would like to speak on the spirit of endurance. In the past, I have stressed on how important it is to finish the race (whatever it may be) even when the finish line is not in sight. Granted, it is a tough task, but for us to win life’s grueling battles, most times we must endure the ride.

The thought alone is an unpleasant one, but at the end of it all, individuals, normally, are thankful that they stayed on track and never gave up, even when the thought came to mind.

Again, I am stressing on the importance of weathering the storm.Remember, though weeping may stay for the night, joy comes in the morning. Sometimes, however, ‘morning’ is not so literal and joy does not simply arrive the next day. However, if you wait it out, and exercise faith, one day, you will see the bright light at the end of the tunnel.

Like any other, I encounter great challenges in life and sometimes feel overwhelmed, but then I remember everything is for a time and that I must take things one step at a time.

When you do so, life truly becomes manageable and eventually you can let out a sigh of relief. The mountain high pile of schoolwork or office work will soon decrease and is not as daunting as you may think.

If you maintain a positive attitude, you will get through the ordeals that come your way.

Remember: if you do what is necessary, eventually you will succeed: you won’t be in that ‘dead end’ job forever; you will graduate from school even though it feels like you never will and life will start again for you even if you just had a baby.

If you do what you have to do, I can assure you, you will get there. Do your job and let God do the rest.

The road is steep sometimes and the ride may get bumpy. Perhaps you will cry your eyes out as you may get tired of envisioning success when all you want to do is taste it.Be patient; sometimes the time just isn’t right. Work hard and know that God sees all and when the time is right, He will step in on your behalf. You got this!

Have a good weekend all.

Sincerely, always,

Rae A.
