Hebrews 10:36 and Endurance...


Our five year old granddaughter learned how to ride her bike on New Years Day!
On New Year's Eve I wrote a post about my word for the year.
Hebrews 10:36 is the verse that God first used to speak to me about endurance.
Endurance, not giving up, is an important quality for everything in life, 
even for learning to ride a bike!

I have such gratitude for you & your blog and the blessings both have brought forth in my life! My heart is full of gratitude to God for knowing how to minister to me through you :-)

  6. Endurance....is a word I am giving much thought to. After 22 yrs. on the same job....I am trying to hang in there. Is this where the Lord wants me? Is He going to show me...to stay/go. Go??? where??? Which way??? Every day is a struggle. It's been very hard for a long time. I keep hoping it would get better but it gets ten times worst. Endurance.
    I am alone and it's all on me...which makes it all harder.
    Thank you for your blog of encouragement.

  7. What a great word. We need endurance -- that I'm not giving up attitude -- in order to see His will accomplished in our life. I am looking forward to watching this word unfold for you!

  8. great verse eizabeth...and learning to ride a bicycle is a good illustration of it too isn't it. i was one who took a longer time learning to ride. i was so uncoordinated:( for some it take less endurance than others, but it does take endurance for sure! thanks for that great word from GOD!

  10. Being a Mimi myself, I loved this image! If ever there was a picture of endurance, learning to ride a bike is surely it. Praying that our God sealed the importance into that little girl's heart & mind without her even realizing it.May she draw upon that lesson for all her life! Blessings to you & yours!

    1. She learned quite easily, but her mama was one who was fearful and took a long time to learn to ride. We all need endurance in different ways I suppose.
