Perseverance –

James 1:12, Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love Him.

As a college student, I’m a little too familiar with the overwhelming feeling that something I have been working on is going to be a failure. I couldn’t tell you how many times I have contemplated giving up on something just because of that fear. This fear of failure is both troubling and common. However, if you cling to the Lord in these times, He will see you through.

James 1:12 says, “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love Him.” If we persevere with the Lord, He will reward us with the one thing that really matters, an eternal life with Him. So, I urge you again, cling to the Lord in your times of hardship, and He will reward you in eternity with Him.
