My Word For 2021

ENDURANCE

Endurance is not just surviving, and it’s not just existing. Endurance is about the way we react to hardship.

Endurance is not complaining and criticising the people who are making decisions to protect us and try to keep us in a job at the same time. A person who endures manifests courage, steadfastness, and patience. 

One reference work explained endurance as “the spirit which can bear things, not simply with resignation, but with blazing hope…the quality which keeps a man on his feet with his face to the wind.

We all want to enjoy life the way we used to – but we have to face that we are in a time of trouble – now is not the time to crumble – it is the time to endure, with blazing hope fuelling our endurance.
