Patient Continuance! 9/28/16
Patient Continuance! 9/28/16




Romans 2:7 (KJV)
7  To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

PATIENCE CONTINUANCE!!

Try saying that three times in a row!!!!

PATIENT CONTINUANCE-from <G5278> (hupomeno); cheerful (or hopeful) endurance, constancy  :- enduring, patience, patient continuance (waiting).
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

This Verse came to mind these past couple of weeks as I RECOVERED from vacation!

Why is it we ALWAYS come home more tired than when we left?

Broken seat belts, (NOW I can smile about it), broken guitar, water damage to kitchen and living room, endless tasks to be performed and now a broken computer.

Add to that, a continual steam of visiting loved ones needing attention!!!

I believe God is further instructing this vessel in PATIENT CONTINUANCE!!??

A beloved friend and fellow musician posted on FB a while ago phrase that went something like this:

" I do not need to be a better musician than anybody else.

I just need to be better today that I was yesterday!"

I say AMEN to that!!!

This axiom also applies to OUR everyday lives!

" I DO NOT NEED TO BE A BETTER PERSON, SPOUSE, PARENT, CHRISTIAN, ETC., ETC. THAN ANYBODY ELSE!

I JUST NEED TO BE A BETTER PERSON, SPOUSE, PARENT, CHRISTIAN, ETC., ETC., THAN I WAS YESTERDAY!!!!

Luke 21:19 (KJV)
19  In your patience possess ye your souls.

Life for ALL of us is "HERE A LITTLE, AND THERE A LITTLE!"

Isaiah 28:10 (KJV)
10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Often times in THIS life, life is an endless series of three steps forward and two steps back.

Sometimes WE drop our Cross and/or lose our way in life!!!

WE get busy and/or distracted which quickly and easily leads to frustration!!!

WE forget that we are merely human BE-INGS and not human DO-INGS.

WE forget the wise old adage, "ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY!"

WE cannot lose all the weight we NEED to lose overnight!!!!

WE cannot become master of anything quickly!

It ALWAYS requires:

Isaiah 28:10 (KJV)
10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Life is a journey, NOT a destination!!!

Acts 14:22 (KJV)
22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.  

WE MUST "CONTINUE IN THE FAITH!"

CONTINUE-from <G1722> (en) and <G3306> (meno); to stay in the same place, i.e. (figurative) to persevere :- continue.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary. 

Our main focus MUST be on "STAYING IN THE SAME PLACE, I.E. (FIGURATIVE) TO PERSEVERE :- CONTINUE!!!

SMILE! The ONLY way to know is "IF we follow on/ CONTINUE ON to know the Lord!!!"

Hosea 6:3 (KJV)
3  Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

As MIKEY well taught:

" TRY IT-YOU MIGHT LIKE IT!!!!"

I wonder who was brave enough to eat the first egg or raw oyster????

WE will never know whether we can or cannot do something until we try, and try, and try again!!!!

PATIENT CONTINUANCE!!!!!

1 Peter 4:12 (KJV)
12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

Today, "THINK IT NOT STRANGE CONCERNING THE FIERY TRIAL WHICH IS TO TRY YOU!!!!"

Hebrews 12:12-13 (KJV)
12  Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;  

13  And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.

BE ENCOURAGED TODAY!

You CAN do it!!!!!!

GOD BLESS YOU!!!
