I’ve learned the value of perseverance. Here’s a little acronym someone gave me about perseverance:

Persist no matter what.

Endure discomfort.

Request help.

Steadfastly hold on to your beliefs and values.

Envision triumph.

Very consistently keep at it.

Embrace adversity as your teacher.

Refuse to give up.

Enjoy and celebrate tiny bits of progress.

As a runner, I say this:  The race is not to the swift, but to those who keep on running.  The Bible says: Don’t be weary in doing good.  For in due time you will reap a harvest of good deeds, if you do not quit.
