As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.
Help me persevere through this difficult trial. I know I need to continue against all odds, but my strength is more than gone. And it is hard to believe in the blessing when my heart is broken to the bone. As Job did, however, let me also feel Your presence in my soul, comforting me in the knowledge You will bring deliverance in Your time.
