Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete,not lacking anything. James 1:4

Pushing through hard times is like a good work out. Mid way you might be saying, "I want to stop now!" or you may just stop. Other times you hear a voice saying, "you can do it, finish what you started- Finish strrong!" I personally hear Jillian's voice from the biggest loser saying, "unless you die, you are not quitting". It motivates me when I am working out to keep going.

Scripture does this for me in my walk with Christ. Lets face it, there are times when things are tough and we know we are to persevere, but they are hard and unpleasant and sometimes smelly and dirty. James tells us that when we persevere all the way through, there is a gift. Maturity and completeness. I prefer to say that I have been well seasoned. :)

Learning through the trials not only helps us to grow but is also gives us the experience and understanding to minister to others who are in need. It strengthens us to know that nothing can separtate us from the love of God. El Roi (The God who sees me)It prepares us for bigger battles and ultimately it helps us ReFlect the fact that God is always with us! He promises that we will be able to do and endure all things because he is with us.

Press on dear ones! Press on!

Father, Thank you for always whispering in my ear, "I am here, you are not alone. Let's do it together. Well done". I want to ReFlect your glory and your perseverence in my life. Show me how.
