In the Christian life and in life in general people often fail because they are not persistent , or they succeed because they are.
I went through beauty school and graduated with a 4.0 and could have graduated with honors but did not want to join a sorority. Also, because I was persistent I passed both the state board written exams and the practical with ease. I got up at 4:00am every morning to study. At home I practiced both on my manicans and the manicure as I timed myself so when the tests came I breezed through them and was ready for them. I have the goal now to learn how to cut men’s hair, and I already have an invitation to come practice in a salon/barber shop.
With my art my goal is to start going to art and craft festivals and to set up a booth. First, I was advised to make up a quantity of quality items. I’m crocheting and knitting my heart out to do this. I’m getting up early and start to work at 6:00 am and I work till about 10:00 pm. I’m working this like I would any other job. I’m giving myself a couple of more months to get my quality items made, and I’m enjoying it.
In my Christian life I know the Lord wants me to witness. I’m focusing on the area where live right now, handing out tracts on the busy streets or when I come across people in every day life. I have not won anybody here yet(that I know of) but I’ve planted some seeds and watered. The Bible does say some plant, others water, and some reap the harvest. I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to see all three in my life from witnessing. So those of you who desire to witness, don’t give up.
No matter what you decide to do in life don’t quit. If you persist you *will* see results. ” And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
When we face challenges
Let us not quit
For God is with us
And will help us to win.
So lift up your head
Let worry and doubt cease
Resist thoughts of failure
Choose victory instead.
