Whew! Where has this month gone? Perseverance, folks, that's what life is all about. You have to be patient with yourself as you make your way through this world. I have only two weeks left to tie up all of my retirement decisions -- estate planning, investment planning, trusts and wills, etc. I am also faced with two publishing-related deadlines.
Can you relate to this topic of perseverance? The ability to remain calm and to keep plodding your way through life is truly a great gift to possess. How do you handle those moments when your whole life changes and you have to make decisions on the fly? How do you keep up with all you're tasked with in life? Like marathon training, life is an incredible journey, especially when you open up to the possibility of pain and the progress you will make with perseverance and patience over years and years of dedication to making your life count for the Lord.
Stay patient, folks. Perseverance is key. Consistency and patience will win the day. You need to train yourself to overcome the anxieties and doubts in your life. The only way to do that is by staying close to Jesus and "abiding in him."
I hope this blog helps to bring you some perspective on what it means to face the transitions of life while persevering through the ups and downs of life's milestones.
