Thought for the day

"But if we hope for what we do not see, then we eagerly wait for it with perseverance"
Romans 8:25

I read this verse the other day, and can't get it outta my head. I laughed when I first read it ~ "eagerly wait" ?!!! I'm eager, and I'm waiting, but I'm not overly eager about waiting!!! So I figure, this is a timely revelation?!!

I'm still trying to figure out the perseverance part... Is waiting for a really long time, because you can't do anything about that, classified as perseverance?!! I think there's still alot I need to learn?

I hope you received some enlightenment too!!!

Enlightenment when needed is the only thing that has kept me from going gonzo as I persevere. Sometimes it comes at the most unexpected moments.

Perseverance is such a hard thing to attain. Thankfully, with God, all things are possible....:-)

Good thing we don't have to rely on our own strength!

Hummmmm, I haven't seen that verse...I'll have to read that one again a couple of times.

I seem to be very good at persevering only when it includes chocolate chip cookies! =)
