Day 19 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Hang On

 

{This post is for the person of faith.  If that’s not you, no worries.  You can read it if you like or simply bypass it.}

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
James 1:2-4 (NIV)

Day 19 - 90Wow.  Things don’t seem to be letting up at all.  Today I am facing such great discouragement.  I’m down.  Maybe even sad.

It doesn’t help that it is a downpour outside.  And on top of that there is other stuff going on in my life that contributes to tHe FuNk.

My father had emergency brain surgery this past week.  At times we didn’t know if he would make it.

I feel like I have been punched in the stomach and have had all the air knocked out of me.  BUT, I’m holding on.  Today I am specifically holding on to hope by saying James 1:2-4 out loud over and over and reminding myself that the testing of my faith produces perseverance.  Yes, this test is producing the very thing I am after!

If you find yourself in a season of funk, HaNg On.  This ride won’t last forever.

If, on the other hand, life is bliss, I hope to join you soon.  You can just file this away for down the road when you are facing a rainy day.

However you find yourself today, know I’m thinking of ya and SeNdiNg a PrAyEr that you’ll be strengthened and encouraged as you FoLLoW PeAcE.
