Dichotomy Series – Perseverance

Not frequently, but sometimes the thought crosses my mind that it would be so easy to just quit.  Quit trying, quit hoping, quit believing, just quit everything.  Sometimes I get caught up looking at the obstacles.  I see the pain.  I see the cost.  I see the past.  I see my failures.  I see my own weaknesses.  And sometimes, these things get to be so consuming that it is difficult to look into a brighter future.  There are times when the smiling face I wear becomes so thin and brittle that I fear it may crumble with the slightest additional breeze of adversity.  Yes, at times, part of me says it would be so much easier to just quit.  To run, to hide, to escape,

However, even in those moments when I feel like all of my faith has been unseen and all of my prayers have been unheard, there is another side of me that cries out.  It clings desperately and without wavering to the confidence that no situation, no circumstance, no failure, no mistake, or any other obstacle is ever so large as to be insurmountable by God’s love.  This part of me has been so completely persuaded of His consuming love that it pulls me back from the ledge every time and without fail.

“I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.” – The Apostle Paul (Romans 8:38-39 Msg)

    Jeremy…LOVE this…totally agree and have been there myself. Thanks for sharing this. I needed this today because even though I’m not today where I have been in the past feeling like that, I had a rough day mentally/ministry wise that made me feel just a little bit like that and it was great to read this! Thanks!
