Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

#atozchallenge E is for…

  
There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.
~ J. G. Holland ~

But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
~ Matthew 24:13 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to Day 6 of the A to Z Challenge and my April’s IWSG commitment. (wink) 

I extend a heartfelt welcome to Alex and April’s IWSG co-hosts.

I believe the ability to endure anything requires faith and hope with tons of grace and perseverance. (wink)
  
My faith thoughts, as a writer, on endurance is to keep writing. I strongly encourage to write what’s on your heart/mind. We get better the more we write and do our own thing. (smile)

The upside to endurance:

Endurance and perseverance can get us to a published book.
Endurance builds confidence to just do it. (grin)

Explore and research to find style
Network for what we don’t know
Devote time to reading other authors
Understanding great writing takes time
Reach timeline goals
Appreciate each accomplishment
Nourish the dream
Cultivate writing voice
Encouraged to keep moving forward

Endurance is believing in our talents to go the distance.

Abundant blessings to keep the faith and enjoy today. 

Your thoughts are welcome. (smile)

You’ll never succeed if you can’t endure. Good word for both the IWSG and the Challenge.

Endurance is a wonderful concept. I had not even thought of it. The quote about things that grow slowly endure is very meaningful for me right now because I feel that I should know so much more than I do. Now I can reflect on the thought that I am enduring which makes me feel much better. Thanks!
