Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. – James 1:4

Faith is much more about abiding than it is about leaping. It is about being rooted, grounded, stable, planted. It’s about dwelling in God’s house and love every day, every morning. Faith is about every single day taking one more step towards the goal that God has for me. In the tumult of life and the storms of life, we keep moving forward because we have faith. We trust in the goodness of God.

God is good; he hasn’t abandoned you, he’s gonna carry you through. When you get through, you’re gonna be stronger, smarter, brighter, and more joyful than you’ve ever been. That’s good news. Don’t give up because slow and steady wins the race. Don’t compare yourself to others. That will poison your life. Keep moving one foot in front of the other because faith is about abiding and not about leaping.

PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to continue to persevere. Help me to abide in your will and your love. Amen.

REFLECTION: What good things are being done in my life by God as I persevere through daily trials?
