I heard the story of a couple who were celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary recently. They had spoken about the constant strain that being married to “that man” or “that woman” had on their individual lives, and how over and over each of them had temptations to just give up and split. It would have been so much easier.
But, after sticking with it, both were overjoyed with the countless decisions each of them had made to stay married throughout the years.
“It’s been so worth it.”
There is a prize waiting for you on the other side of your struggle. If you’re like me, you’ve started things multiple times in your life only to give up when times started to get hard or your traction started to give way. Don’t give in! Maybe it’s in your marriage or relationships. Maybe it’s at your job. Maybe it’s with your health (Nutrition & Exercise). Maybe it your spirituality and connection with God. Endure through the tough points, because IT. WILL. BE. WORTH. IT.
