When I first saw the middle picture above...it struck me how true it is...it is a true picture of perseverance cut short. We should never - never give up...we don't know how close we are to the prize...could be only a chip of the pick away from riches beyond our imagination. I'm not saying that persevering is easy...in most cases it's not "easy"...but knowing that if we continue steadfastly and face the adversities that are thrown in our path...the end result is very rewarding.
Knowing that God loves me, stands with me and even carries me through the difficult patches of my life is what helps me get through all the "stuff". The answer that most people are searching for is knowing that someone will carry them when they can't walk through those lows...someone will stand in the gap for them and give them hope when everything seems hopeless and impossible.
We need to show this type of love to our friends and family...love that endures to the end. Help them realize that whatever they are facing only seems impossible because they are in the middle of it right now. If they stay strong...they can make it.
Love Always Perseveres!
