This word perseverance means to be steading or believe over a long period despite difficulties or setbacks. Living the life of purpose we need to have perseverance because know difficulties and setbacks will occur. This could be with us or those we counsel or mentor.
I can say in another way we never give up because our purpose is in our being. Also, it is in our DNA. Our purpose is part of who we are.
So when times get difficult stick to your guns and persevere. Remember we are running a marathon and not a sprint. Amen!
