Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

I Must Have Perseverance; Character is Next

I must have perseverance because Romans 5:3-4 says, "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulations brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope;"

I don't usually tease with my blog posts.  At least it is not intentional.  I try to keep my life somewhat private.  So, I'm praying that this scripture truly comes to pass in my life because, well, life can be so difficult at times.  I don't know when the character or hope will arrive, but let it be soon, Lord, soon.  I am tired.

4 kind words:

Hang in there Cheri, you've climbed many mountains; just another one to get over I'm certain. Praying in OH.

"He knows when something glorious in the future necessitates something difficult in the present. Because He knows the glory will be worth it, God will risk being misunderstood. Yes, God wants us to have joyful, satisfying lives, but he also wants us to have crowns to cast. Rewards to receive. Character to develop. Compassion to give. Testimonies to tell. In the midst of those painful processes, God makes bold promises."

(Beth Moore)

Hugs,
Sara
