Going the distance

thumb.phpSometimes we can have a moment of frustration even when we are we are supposed to be. That frustration can spur on the urge to quit. And the urge to quit can either lead you to actually quit at what you are doing or you can keep going. Naturally our mind tells us why we should not pursue this particular avenue any longer. But then the Holy Spirit speaks louder and says..GO THE DISTANCE! “Just because you had a bad day,does not mean you have to give into the desire to quit”

I have had too many lousy days to count when working on a painting, drawing, writing etc…. Some days, like today are no different. It may seem like a huge deal because it is the most recent, but give it some time; minutes, hours or a day or so. My point is,  go the distance, run the race despite the disappointments. My challenge to you today: Talk to God, embrace His word, vent to your best friend, get advice….and keep going!

Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:2-5 {ESV}
