Persevere Despite the Challenge You Face:

Ellen J. Barrier

Nothing comes easy. We have to learn to know how to achieve the things we desire.
To get the best out of education, we must be willing to give all we have regardless, of the sacrifices we will have to make. That might mean spending less money; eating more vegetables than meat or watching television more often than going to movies. Or it might mean that we have to plant gardens and grow our vegetables and fruit.

Whatever sacrifices it takes to reach our goals, we have to be willing to persevere.

When others poke fun and some try to discourage us, we must persevere in the face of every challenge.

If there is someone or something blocking our path to success, we must find a way to go around. We can’t allow ourselves to be defeated by standing still or running away from challenges. We must be determined to persevere, despite the challenges we face. Security comes within the vein of perseverance.  With hope in God, victories are accomplished.

But the LORD is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. 
2 Thessalonians 3:3 (King James Version Bible)

Humans Errors:

No one is above the probability to commit a wrongful act, which is why we need to pray and engage in conversations with others, offering encouragement and to believe in possibilities. We can do a lot more than we think, if we try listening to others and observing the behavior of an individual that is questionable.

If we look closely at the things noted in paragraph 3 below, in the quote, we see some symptoms of behavior that needs to be checked. This is not good behavior.

When we hear of ‘good people’ committing wrongful acts that those who knew them, would never have believed they were capable of doing – we then know that there is a probability that such things can happen to anyone.

“For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.” _Titus 3:3 (K.J.V)

It is for this purpose we shouldn’t judge others, but be ready to help friends and relatives, by encouraging them to talk about things that might be troubling them, before they become impossible to reach. 


If you knew of someone who were expressing some of the symptoms above, would you try to help them? If so, how would you approach them? How do you feel you might be able to help such an individual?
