My grandma never stopped praying. She never ever complained. Every clock in her home had a different time on it and only she could interpret each one so she would never be late. She understood God's timing too. My mother told me how grandma was so filled with enthusiasm on her death bed, eager to meet Jesus and His Mother, Mary, the one my grandma was named after. She understood how to read God's clock. That is the best definition of spiritual perseverance I know.
Here are some tips to help you with spiritual perseverance:
- When you are with the Lord, some days will be like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day. His timing is out of this world. Trust His time clock. There is no need to worry about how slow traffic is moving, he may be slowing it down to protect you from harm or to give you time to pray.
- Your time clock will never stop, thanks to Jesus. He conquered death so that you may have eternal life. You have enough time to do everything God wants you to do as long as your clock is synchronized with God's clock.
- The right people will come into your life at the right time. Stop watching the clock and live your life. Savor every minute. Don't worry how much time is left on the clock. You have eternity.
