Quote of the Day and Scripture Focus to Practice Diligent Persistence
Quote of the Day
Keep Going. Diligent persistence is one of the most powerful weapons you possess.
Thought of the Day
Develop a habit of diligent persistence.
The only sure fire way to keep from getting to where you want to be is to stop going. When you choose to stop then you choose to give up the possibility living you were designed to walk out.
You can slow down. You can take a break. But the moment you stop you are done.
Jesus tells a parable about a widow coming to complain to a ruler about the people giving her a hard time. The ruler dismisses her. She comes back and she keeps coming back until finally, the ruler does something – not because he owes anything to the woman or cares what the people are doing to her but because it’s the only way he knows to get her to stop.
When you want something deep down in your knower (that place where your heartseed dwells) then refuse to give up or to give in.
Practice diligent persistence.
Challenge for Intentional Actions
