A Thought to Ponder

Perseverance

Remember this:

When Abraham Lincoln was a young man he ran for legislature in Illinois, and was badly swamped. He next entered business, failed, and spent seventeen years of his life paying up for the debts of a worthless partner. He was in love with a beautiful young woman to whom he became engaged - then she died. Later he married a woman who was a constant burden to him. Entering politics again, he ran for Congress, and again was badly defeated. He then tried to get an appointment in the United States land office, but failed. He became a candidate for the United States Senate, and was badly defeated. In 1856 he became a candidate for the Vice Presidency and was once more defeated. In 1856 he was defeated by Douglass.
One failure after another - bad failures - great setbacks. In the face of all this he eventually became one of the greatest men in America, whose memory is honored throughout the world. When you contemplate the effect of a series of setbacks like this, doesn't it make you feel rather small to become discouraged?

So it is with our Christian walk.....do not let setbacks allow you to give up. What was it Paul said? I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith...2 Timothy 4:7 kjv
