” By your endurance you will gain your souls.” – Luke 21.19
A victory awaits that does not dissipate or disappoint, as do those victories in the field of human pursuits. There, we swing, sometimes fast, fierce and unforeseen, between high and low, up and down, victory and defeat, profit and loss. There, after a while, we discover the game of digits is rigged for the game makers who created the rules and digits in the first place. Wisdom thus says: render unto Caesar what is Caesars…”
An endurance of all things, including the suffering, is not a pursuit but a purpose: the evolution, the development of your Being – the unique, unrepeatable imprint of God in you body, mind and emotion that we convey with the simple word: soul.
Endure what you can. Endure, so to win for yourself, your soul, more radiant, more complete, more full in the stature of Christ than you could be on your own without the grace of fire fueling your furthering. A divine image further formed into a deeper divine likeness.
