July 16, 2017 – Will we make it to the End?

Daily Challenges

Now that we’ve made half way through this year, the question is:
Will we make it to the end of it?

Endurance means the capacity of something to last.

For younger kids, it seems as if a year can drag on forever.
For middle agers, it’s as if it goes by in no time at all.
And some much older folks, it seems as if it takes about a month and the years gone.

Of course, age isn’t defined by a number.
Our life’s choices and paths can determine our age.

Our challenge is to find a way to slow down the passage of time if that’s possible.

What Else Can We Do?

Sometimes, taking an extra ten minutes to stare at the sky or the night time stars.

Sometimes, stopping in the middle of a project to remember to breathe.

Sometimes, delegating responsibilities to others, to give us more time to relax.

Making it to the end of this year means having endured to till the end.
Seeing something through to the end, even if it’s just a new year,
is an accomplishment, because not everyone does.

Sometimes we need to make changes or adjustments that come our way.

This blog will now be posted on Sunday instead of Wednesday to make a needed adjustment.

The Bible Says

Hebrews 10:35-36
Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise.

Hebrews 12:1
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and sin which so easily ensnares us and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

Psalm 39:4
Lord, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am.
