1. Steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.
2. Continuance in a state of grace to the end, leading to eternal salvation.*
As an English geek, I love looking up the definitions of words. As I was thinking about what to title my blog, I came across this definition and I was captivated by it. The idea of steadily persisting in spite of difficulties or discouragement seems a lot like my life lately.
"Continuing in a state of grace to the end." Isn't that so true? How much we need God's grace each and every day. We must live in a constant state of grace. Wrestling with the difficulties and challenges. Walking beside God, yelling at him, being held by him. Figuring it all out with friends and companions on the journey.
In my blog, this is what I'd like to pursue. Meeting joy in the everyday challenges of life. Persevering through humor and moments of grace. Looking for God's love, strength and hope through it all.
