Grace in Perseverance


Not feeling like I'm persevering.
But it's not about feelings is it?
And perseverance is measured at the end and not at the beginning, right?
Right now I love the lines from Kerri Robert's song Outcast

So what if I don't look the
Part I'm supposed to play
What if I don't follow
All the rules they make
They think I should be perfect
They love it when I mess up
No grace in case I blow it
A good girl shouldn't need it



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

Praying that you may continue in your perseverance and grace abounds more abundantly that it is not in your own work that you may boast but save the cross of Christ.

I've been feeling, a lot lately, like the Tortoise as in the Tortoise and the Hare.
Then I remember who won!!!

I just read this on my facebook...
Daniel Warren Williams:
How many more steps to breakthrough? I don’t know. I never know until AFTER the final step, so I walk. IN faith, I walk. BY faith I walk. In confident perseverance, I walk. Through valleys of doom, I walk. Past shadows of fear, I walk. Over mountains of doubt, I walk. Through jungles of entanglements, I walk. Shepherd of my soul You are with me, Your rod & staff comfort me, my cup overflows, so I walk.

I guess I'll know if I persevered... when I get to the end... right?
