Joe and Jessa the nurse called yesterday to tell us that she would need to start my second round of treatments today. To be honest with you my head started to throb at the thought of doing it again! I was way more excited, hopeful and willing to BEGIN than I was to DO it AGAIN! This is not the only time I have felt like this in my life!
I have often come to terms the reality of my situation during my first experience! I no longer felt that I would be able to continue or more honestly I lacked the DESIRE! The cost, pain, effort, time, risk, and struggle seemed too big. Looking back, if I only followed through when I FELT like it, I would have not DONE much!
QUITTING can never be an option once you decide to commit.
Granted some situations are not options for you now. Learning to adapt, adjust and excel when you have no way out will help prepare your heart for what you will experience as adults! A heart that doesn't faint when life is hard perseveres! Some of the best moments of growth, benefit and success come when we dare to do the things we dread...AGAIN!
2 Peter 1:5-8
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
