Last week I confessed how I usually give up some goals when I fall behind. That night, not only did I see the value in reading God’s Word, I saw the value in not giving up. I also noticed the value of not giving up in another area.
I’ve shared with you before about my daughter’s struggle.
Last week, when we read the Bible together, she wanted a turn to read. She picked up the heavy family Bible, raised her voice, and read. Boldly. It wasn’t a children’s Bible. There were lots of hard words. She didn’t quit when she faltered. Frustration stayed away. She read. And read. And read. Verse after verse. Truth after truth. She read.
She showed me strength in the struggle.
It was beautiful.
I’m so thankful we didn’t give up.
