Our word for 2020 was perseverance. Little did we know then how much that word would be confirmed as important. Covid 19 virus has seemed to change our lives daily. We have just had to persevere!
Seems like where ever we look that word persevere is being used. What does persevere mean? In the dictionary the meaning goes something like this, to continue on even when it is hard and success is not guaranteed.
We are all trying to continue on during this time and we certainly can’t see the future. Sure glad it was not something I would have known beforehand. There is certainly a reason we are not told the future. God knows our future and He wants us to trust Him with it. We are to persevere, taking one day at a time.
So how do we continue to persevere even when it gets hard? Look to God for strength to carry on. Ask Him to keep you hopeful even when others around you may not be. Pray for others and offer help where you can. Stay safe, stay well, and stay strong! Focus on God and persevere.
“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
