And hence, it stands to reason, there will be periodic challenges, times of discouragement, even bouts of depression and wanting to give up and throw in the towel.
It is true that tough times never last, but tough people do.
But how do tough people do it?
Paul gave us the answer:
1. Tough people get through tough times because they believe God has a plan for their lives, and that he will complete the plan. They believe the story is not over yet, and it will be a happy ending.
2. Though people get through tough times because they are able to forget the mistakes of the past by learning from them and then focusing on the future.
3. Tough people get through tough times because they tap prayerfully into the strength that Christ is giving them.
4. Tough people get through tough times because they give thanks even in the tough times. They ask God thanksgiving for what they need to get through the tough times.
Be strong brethren, fight a good fight!
1 Timothy 6:12
"Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses."
So that soon, we too can say the same as Paul:
2 Timothy 4:7
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith;"
