These two OLD WORDS are woven into the fabric sports today. A gritting commitment to practice (diligence) prepares a team for competition...
“It is the hard work you do in practice after you are “all in” that improves your condition. Force yourself when you are tired.” John Wooden
And not giving up when the chips are down (perseverance) has yielded more wins than can be counted. It takes diligent perseverance.
The apostle Paul recommends diligence and perseverance for great outcomes....
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 NIV
Let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued by all that is on our plate. Into our struggles God’s Word whispers this refreshing truth…
“Perseverance brings about character which, in turn, fosters genuine hope as the Holy Spirit pours God’s love and comfort into us.” Romans 5:4
PRAYER: You call me to DILIGENT PERSEVERANCE when I am questioning or exhausted. I trust you for the win - the blessing - the “well done”. It is by your strength and guiding hand that I move forward in hope. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
DO LIFE WITH DILIGENT PERSEVERANCE!
