“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised”. Hebrews 10:35-36 (NIV)

TROUBLE IS A STEPPING-STONE TO GROWTH -Helen Steiner Rice
===============================
Trouble is something no one can escape,
everyone has it in some form or shape
Some people hide it way down deep inside,
Some people bear it with gallant-like pride,
Some people worry and complain of their lot,
Some people covet what they haven't got,

While others rebel and become bitter and old
With hopes that are dead and hearts that are cold
But the wise man accepts whatever God sends,
Willing to yield like a storm-tossed tree bends,
Knowing that God never makes a mistake,
So whatever He sends they are willing to take

For trouble is part and parcel of life
And no man can grow without trouble and strife,
And the steep hills ahead and high mountain peaks
Afford man at last the peace that he seeks
So blest are the people who learn to accept
The trouble men try to escape and reject,
For in our acceptance we're given great grace
And courage and faith and the strength to face
The daily troubles that come to us all
So we may learn to stand "straight and tall"
For the grandeur of life is born of defeat
For in overcoming we make life complete.


Jesus, the Example
1Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us (run with endurance the race that is set before us,
Hebrews 12

“By your endurance you will gain your lives. Luke 21:19
"You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved Matthew 10:22

“But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved Matthew 24:13
