The Bible speaks . . .

Perseverance . . .

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."


-James 1:2-4


"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love them."


-James 1:12

Good verses for everyone. Essential for writers...

I'm trying to remember how I came across these verses. I wasn't reading the book of James. But after reading the first chapter, these two literally leapt off the page.

Perseverance ... it's all about the journey, isn't it. : )
