Perseverance Pays

There is nothing better in life than getting the big payoff. All of the struggle, heartache, difficulty, uncertainty and sleepless nights become a learning curve when you get to the solution.  What happens as a result of the payoff is the purpose of the perseverance. You learn that the very thing that you were struggling to realize – “winning” – and all the effort required was NECESSARY for you to grow.  No matter what the test, if you hang in there and keep the faith, GOD IS USING EVERYTHING HE MUST TO MATURE YOU INTO WHO HE WANTS YOU TO BE. 

 

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

 

When you like the results – THANK GOD!

 

When you DON’T like the results – THANK GOD!

 

When you are confused about the results

 

THANK GOD ANYHOW!

 

THE MORE THANKSGIVING GOD GETS,

 

THE BIGGER THE PAYOFF. 

 

IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER!
