Persevering Perseverance


PERSEVERANCE~

Blood Sweat.Tears.

is what it took to live out the

biggest

PERSEVERANCE

of them all

that brought

JESUS

to HIS last Words on the cross~

"IT IS FINISHED!" (John 19:30).

Oh the words that bring music to my ears

and I bet to yours

because when "this" is all said and done

what a

Glorious Day

when

we are

FREE

in the here & now

to do

to be

all that we can do & be.

But aren't we FREE this very second

because of

HIS BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS

as we await for that

Glorious Day

when

PERSEVERANCE

will no longer be an option

because

"HE will wipe every tear from their eyes,

and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain.

All these things are gone forever” (Revelation 21:4)

But don't we meet

JESUS in the PERSEVERANCE

in the here & now

even if it feels like

Blood & Sweat & Tears

at times

because

PERSEVERANCE IN HIM

is glorious

as HIS PEACE

overwhelms us

when PEACE appears to be an impossibility

yet becomes a reality

as we continue to

PERSEVERE

which is

Patient Endurance.

BUT we don't do it alone

because that is where we meet

JESUS

who

PERSEVERED for

you & me & everyone else

because LOVE takes

BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS to a whole other level

as we can only PERSEVERE because of HIS GREAT LOVE~

"As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered.

You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the LORD finally brought about.

The LORD is full of compassion and mercy" (James 5:11)

Oh look up to the Cross

where

HE PERSEVERED

in

Blood. Sweat. Tears

that we will never have to endure~

even when it feels like

PERSEVERING

is becoming a burden

when actually it is a

Blessing IN HIM

in every moment

no matter what the moment is~

"Because of the LORD'S great love we are not consumed,

for HIS compassions never fail"*

PERSEVERANCE~

"They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness"*

PERSEVERANCE~

"I say to myself, 'The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for HIM'"*

because IN HIM it is

"The LORD is good to those whose hope is in HIM, to the one who seeks HIM;

it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD" *(Lamentations 3:22-26)

IN PERSEVERANCE

is where we will always
