  • Lisa's Jars of Joy


The loan didn’t come through. I’d worked hard on this project for 90 days and at the last minute, the bank pulled out. While talking to my husband he said, “Lisa, don’t give up. Keep steady and persevere. Just keep pushing, keep moving forward.”

Perseverance: “Continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.” Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58

Heavenly Father, Ugh, Trials! This has been a season full of them, one after another after another. Often, I’d rather find the nearest exit and run for the hills. And yet, pain is where Your best work is revealed in my life. Help me to be faithful in serving You and persevere no matter the cost. I know the end result will be beautiful in and for Your NameSake. Amen. Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
