The following poem has been hanging on a mirror in my home. I see it every day, and I read it to myself.
"When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill.
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit -
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit."
That poem says it all.
What challenge are you facing right now? I know it's tough. I know it weighs on your mind. And I know it may be tempting to throw in the towel and walk away.
Don't you dare quit.
Stand strong. Persevere. Keep doing the right thing. Sooner or later, you will see it is worth it.
So just whisper a prayer, look to the Lord, pull up your bootstraps, and keep at it.
With help from above, you CAN do it!
