And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. (1 Peter 5:10 NIV)
Renewing the mind requires endurance. Endurance inevitably produces strength. All are necessary for reaching our goals. However the road to true life change is long and rough. Pitfalls along the way take their tool, and we become weary and lose hope. When we lose hope we run the risk of giving up. Remember the old adage: Winners never quit, and quitters never win? We can bank on it. But how do you maintain optimism during the long dreary days of “temporary defeat?”
L is for Loyalty. In preparation, read and meditate on Titus 2.
See you in a twinkling,
