Keep Going

Because you know that 
the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
-James 1:3

Keep going.

Don't give up now. Not now.

Not now, even when it seems there's no way out.

Not even tomorrow, when you feel like things will never get better.

Not even later, when you just don't see how you can do one more day.

Just keep going.

Keep blinking. Keep getting out of bed. Keep walking out that door. Keep breathing.

Keep holding tightly to the hope you have, because He who promised is faithful.

Keeping holding on to whatever faith you still have, because these are the days that stubborn, beautiful perseverance will take root in your heart and ground you in faith. And one day, that thickly and deeply-rooted perseverance will bloom, and even you will marvel at its beauty.

You're not alone. Keep going.
 
Monday Moment is a little devotional to help kick start your week. See you again next time!

I always find your blog so encouraging and timely, thank you! Most of the time it speaks to me when things are difficult, but I just wanted to say that I've recently come through a season of two years of really digging in and persevering and am now living those lines about marvelling at the beautiful outcomes - so keep going! It really is worth it. God really is worthy of our trust.
