Endurance is challenging, especially when you are faced with adversity. Your natural reaction is to quit or to hide, but instead God wants us to stand. Standing is an act of faith and a struggle of the will. We are encouraged in Scripture to stand and see the salvation of the Lord. As exciting as this Scripture might be, in the middle of life’s moments, this is the last thing you want to do.
Sometimes hope appears to be an elusive term. How can we find hope in the darkness? How can we find strength to endure? Without the details, simply know I understand. I have asked similar questions, cried out to God, and even battled with thoughts of, “Will this ever get any better?”
For the past month, I have been learning to endure in personal fitness. A long time ago, I made exercise a priority twice a day. I would complete 15 to 20 minutes of cardio and finish the workout with weight training. Needless to say, life happened.
