My thought is always “uh yea, who in the heck mentioned anything about quitting?”.
Why would that even come out of your mouth?
I mean the oldest saying in the book is “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”
Nothing worth while is ever easy but we must be careful of how we talk to ourselves and the words that come out of our mouths.
Darren L Johnson puts it nicely when he says “Giving up represents a choice you make when you decide not to take action on something over which you actually do have control.”
It’s those last 5 words. You actually do have control. And maybe the most important thing to remember is – God’s time vs. Your time –
Stay active, have faith in your vision and in God’s grace…that he will reward you and show favor on those who are persistent, faithful to him and kind to others.
