Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
For most things in life, nothing stays the same; you are either moving ahead or falling behind. Ask God for the perserverance to keep the faith and to never stop rowing no matter how strong life’s currents are flowing against you.
But we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
Romans 5 :3-4
