The Resilience of a child.
Have you ever wondered at a baby learning how to walk. He/she falls many times. But never gets discouraged. As a matter of fact, the falling and standing up excites him/her. When a baby is born he/she goes through so many stages before he/she start running. The baby starts by sitting down, crawling, standing, walking, and finally before running. In all these stages the baby never gets discouraged.
As adults, what can we learn from this? Simply; perseverance. We have to keep moving until we get to the Promised Land. What is the vision for your life, family, career, e.t.c? Are you giving up easily because of difficulties, mockery or opposition? If you have a vision and you are sure is part of God’s plan for your life, don’t give it up. Keep working at it, and one day all your efforts will pay up, to your greatest surprise. Someone said that if you can’t run, walk, and if you can’t walk, then crawl, but just keep moving and very you soon you will get there.
Why am I bringing up this story? It is because statistically all over the world, divorce rate is rising, and it is rising not because of serious issues, but for very flimsy excuses. People are no longer ready to fight the devil off their marriages. Many are looking for easy route out of marriage, but that is not God’s intention. Take for instance, someone loses his job, and the family is hard on finance; that is not a reason for divorce. All you have to do is to trust the Lord for a way out. You have got to look for another job, and if possible retrain yourself and go out there to make a living. We have to persevere in our marriages. We have to stick together as a TEAM to make things work. As believers, we have to push the devil out of our marriages. It has always been my utmost belief that if husband and wife stick together they can achieve a lot. Are you facing challenges in your marriage today? Tomorrow will be great if both of you can belief and come together and seek the face of our Lord Jesus Christ. With perseverance you will WIN AGAIN. Remember the Bible says in Galatians 6 vs 9;
” And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not”
Remain ever blessed.
Have a wonderful day.
