Getting a certification.
In certain areas of our life, we tackle hard things for a period of time. But in some seasons of life, everything is tough. There’s no break. No rest. No refuge. And, worse, we’re not making the choice to subject ourselves to the hard thing. It’s just happening and won’t relent. From the very poor to the very rich, we all have severe problems at times in life.
Difficulty is an excuse that history never accepts. So we triumph.
_K’NAAN – Nothing to Lose
Glory doesn’t always come through dominating. Yes, David rolled over Goliath, but Job staggered through his entire ordeal. He survived. In fact, the stories of greatest glory are usually those where people are backed so hard against the ropes that their life is nearly crushed. Until they rise and are more alive than ever.
…humility comes before honor.
Whatever is tough for you right now – some temptation, a life situation, or a health problem – don’t give up. Don’t give up. Some days are for offense. Some days are for enduring.
