Coming Back From A Set Back

“Do not ask for an easy life, ask for the strength to endure the hard one.” ~Bruce Lee 

Endurance_1bEndurance is the power to withstand something challenging. The noun endurance contains endure means “suffer or undergo” and the suffix -ance means “the state of…”or what I define as “State of Being” – otherwise referred to as ACTION. Endurance can also be used to describe the physical strength to keep going; as in a running a marathon but it can also be used when discussing an exhausting spiritual situation, mental strain or a stressful time.

The energy to bounce back from heartbreaks, disappointments, and financial difficulties is Endurance in Action. As long we remind ourselves (and we might to do this often) – that the END (which is another root word of endurance) ALWAYS justifies the means!{Ecclesiastes 7:8} 

So, in this sense Endurance – is the state of BEing resolute – fully knowing that as long as we have breath in bodies we can and will overcome any thing that seems to set us back. That no matter how many times we fall, that if we just get up – then Life will reward us in the end. And if you have yet received your desired reward – then it’s not the END…urance! 


James 1:2-4(KJV)

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. 

James 1:12(KJV)

12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
