snailMy favorite quote is by Charles Spurgeon:  “By perseverance the snail reached the ark.”  And I love what James had to say in James 1:12:  “Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial,” Have you ever wanted to just give up and quit?  Unless God wants us to quit, we have to keep going. So what will get us there, when we need to keep going, but we want to quit?  P-E-R-S-E-V-E-R-A-N-C-E.  Persevere, husband, when you can’t pay the bills.  Persevere, mom, when the child is disobeying.  Persevere, student, when the exams are too hard.  Persevere, leader, when your team isn’t getting it.  Persevere, volunteer, when you’re serving but nobody’s noticing.  Persevere, addict, when the temptation is intense.  Persevere, patient, when the recovery seems so far away. Persevere! God declares in his Word that when you do, you are blessed. Hey, snails are here today because two snails persevered long ago. If you persevere you’ll make it, too.  Even if it’s one slow and wobbly scoot per day.  Be the snail. Scoot. And be blessed.
