How can we be the kind of people others can follow when life hits back? What does it take to persevere? Let’s talk about it.
1. Looking forward.
Perseverance doesn’t happen on accident. Click To TweetIt’s an intentional mindset that you have to take. We have to let go of our desire to control the situation and let God have His way. There’s an area in all of our lives that is just beyond our control. We must decide if we’re going to get bitter or better. When you trust that God will work all things out for your good it allows you to take things one day at a time. It may take years to know why, if you ever know, but perseverance is about staying the course. It’s staying connected to the truth that He loves me and my best days are ahead of me – not behind me.
2. Stay connected to the Father.
