Endurance In Faith

vs. discouragement

Withstanding stress to do my best

To practice Endurance, I will: 

  • put my whole heart into everything I do
  • accept both instruction and feedback
  • no let small obstacles deter me from my bigger goal
  • recognize progress in all its forms
  • not be a “quitter”

    Sacred or Scared?

    When we are in the midst of trials, we can feel scared.  As a person of faith, we can turn scared into sacred.  It is more than just switching two letters.  We need to find the holy in what we are Enduring.  By offering up our suffering and joining it to the cross, we give our pain meaning and make it sacred.  It is much easier to Endure a hardship when it has purpose. When we choose sacred over scared, we can strengthen our Faith and Endurance by responding in prayer and acceptance.  The more we Endure, the more we build our Endurance and with it, hope for successful resolutions.
