PERSEVERANCE


I've always been thought by my Father to stay firm and strong especially in tough times before he left to work abroad. These past days seems to be so tiring for me. I've been awake all night just to finish reading books in lieu to my preparations for the upcoming board exam. Thousands of pages that I have to finish just for me to be comfortable knowing that I am still working on the right pace. 

To be honest, I'm tired and getting ill of the same routine I've been doing for the past weeks. I'm sick of reading books. Tired of borrowing review materials. Drained of listening to hours and hours of lecture for the whole week. Plus, I don't have enough resources to finance the things that I need, unlike any other folks who were in the same situations like me. They can afford to watch movies and join party's after a heavy lecture. Go to the spa and relax for a few moments. Enjoy every leisure time they have since they're parents provides sufficient funds for them to waste. Fortunately, I don't have that luxury! But then, I still feel bad. 

Then God brought me to a realization that entails, "Every dream has a corresponding PRICE to pay!" Michael Jordan didn't reach the top by just because he was slacking off around the corner. You have to strive hard and endure till the last minute in order to win. Even Pat Riley (famous NBA Coach) said, "You can have everything you wanted in this World, but NO ONE will give it to you for FREE!" So will have to work hard to get what you want.

As I was evaluating myself this morning, I thought to myself that I could still be on the right track. So press on CHRISTIAN! Once you win this, It will be over for you on this stage and you can move on to the next level of your journey! You just have to PERSEVERE and bare the discomfort for a while. When you're there already, then you will savor the sweet taste of the SUCCESS that God will reward you for trusting and following Him.

Indeed, the level of Success a person can attain is tantamount to the Sacrifices he is willing to make. The more you sacrifice, the more you become SUCCESSFUL, well of course, with God's guidance, approval and blessing. Press onwards and Never Ever QUIT!!!

I love that line: Every dream has a corresponding price to pay.

I like to think of James 1:4, "Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
