A Call to Persevere

A few weeks ago, I read this verse from Romans 5:3-4 “Suffering produces perseverance, perseverance produces character, character produces hope.” It was a very timely reminder for me as I was thinking about homeschooling and life in general.

Homeschooling has definitely developed perseverance in each of our lives. My children understands that if they don’t persevere, they will not finish the work that has been set out for them., they will not learn and they will not achieve their goals. I also have learned that if I don’t persevere, I will be lazy and unfaithful to what God has called me to do.

Character is only developed in our lives through persevering through tough times. We now see that each challenge is a “set appointment” with God. It is through these that we will become who God intends us to be and we can get to know Him personally.

Through these times, hope in Christ strengthens us and keeps us focused on the goal of becoming like Him every day of our lives. And that truly is the what we all hope to be!
