Some days are just tough. There are some weeks or months that you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes life just feels hard.
I was once again reminded yesterday of a verse that came to me many years ago in a time of struggle (that looked very different from this one).
“Because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Romans 5:3-4
Someday I will be glad I didn’t give up. Someday the people around me will be happy I didn’t give up on them. My perseverance (and that of the people I do life with) can have an effect on people I don’t even know.
In the words of Dory “Just Keep Swimming.”
