November 6-Persist

Proclaim the message; persist in it whether convenient or not; rebuke, correct, and encourage with great patience and teaching. 2 Tim. 4:2

It seems that "Persist" and "Difficult" are synonyms? 
Maybe not, but it seems like this is generally the case. 

Whether persisting through the difficult times of a relationship,
until the beautiful days of celebration

Or the pains of labor

Until the beauty of birth

  Life is about persistence and He tells us to persist whether it is convenient or not. 
That doesn't sound like an easy task to me, but 
one that is worth the reward.
Marriage isn't easy, raising children isn't easy, and loving the unloveable isn't easy,
waiting for a miracle or healing isn't easy, 
Imagine the eternal reward we will experience when we persist.
How about loving an orphan or sharing the gospel with someone just one more time?
Do you have what it takes to persist? 
If not, HE does and He will supply your every need.
You can do ALL THINGS through HIM who gives you strength! (Phil. 4:13)
