Endurance is the ability to sustain over time, to call from ourselves renewed commitment and effort when we are confronted with challenges or hardship. Endurance often requires tolerating discomfort, and may call on us to reach for resources and stamina we are not certain we possess. Wisdom is knowing it not by your own strength, but by the power of God that lives in you that enables you to endure.
“God, who is love personified, has certainly suffered long with us and endured all that we have done against Him. He wants us to become like Him. He wants us to endure all things out of love.” – lifehopeandtruth.com
