Remember my post about the episode of Franklin? Well, today in my daily devotion time, I found this quote that goes along with that lesson perfectly:
The greatest challenge in receiving great things from God is holding on for the last half hour.
That reminds me of a quote that is painted on the walls of my gym:
90% of failures occur because someone gave up too soon.
And then there is this, the most important Word on the subject of all:
We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly to the end the confidence we had at first.
