We all go through difficult times in our lives. The question you have to ask yourself is will you push through? Or, will you get dragged down into the depths of your own despair? It is very easy to allow our circumstances to get the best of us, give up or become discouraged. However, God wants to use our difficulties to strengthen our faith, our job is to trust in Him and know that He knows the outcome of our trials. We have to keep moving forward, with God’s guidance- sometimes we can only look forward to the next moment but then we should stop and remember to thank God for allowing us that moment, and trust that He has everything under control. When you feel negativity start to seep into your mind, open the Bible and start reading God’s truth, it will help you to keep going. The definition of perseverance is doing something, even when you don’t want to, with willingness, a good attitude, humble acceptance of the situation and then making the steps to move forward.
