Day 26: Simple Persistence
They came out of nowhere.
One by one by one by one.
After you swatted one
another one came.
They were PERSISTENT.
They were annoying.
All we wanted to do
was to have our bible study on the beach,
but it was not happening
their PERSISTENCE and numbers.
Something so small
yet so annoying
yet carrying power
to ruin the moment.
Was it the PERSISTENCE? Was it the biting?
Well they got the best of me.
Doesn't anything or anyone overpower you
when it is or when they are
But what if we could be like flies,
yet without the bite.
"Let us not become weary in doing good,
for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up" (Galatians 6:9).
"Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm,
for GOD can be trusted to keep HIS promise" (Hebrews 10:23)
“YOU will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is
steadfast [that is, committed & focused on YOU—in both inclination & character],
Because he trusts and
takes refuge in YOU [with hope and confident expectation]" (Isaiah 26:3 AMP).
I want to be like a fly, yet without the bite,
because it is the only way to fly through this life.
What if you & me & everyone else
would SIMPLY be so
PERSISTENT in our FAITH
as we fly together in unity~
"For where two or three have gathered together in MY name,
I am there in their midst" (Matthew 18:20)
We would be like a swarm of flies (but not biting)
who are flying together
PEACE. JOY. HOPE. LOVE
even when the flies start to take over
of the ONE who is
TENACIOUS & UNWAVERING &
"... for HIS steadfast love endures forever" (Psalm 136:).
Let's SIMPLY FLY
"Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in CHRIST],
steadfast and patient in distress,
devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength]" (Romans 12:12)
"I'M GONNA FLY" (listen to the song below)
