I have been called by several names. Given name, nicknames, special names, complimentary names and uncomplimentary names. One of the descriptive names that I often hear is “Tenacious.” I like that one because it implies, “he is not going to quit or give up.” And, that’s true! I have no intention of quitting before it is time.
I have decided that determination means that I am focusing on the reward of reaching my goal rather than on the obstacles of getting there. It means that I will be crying out for God’s supernatural intervention. It means that I will exert as much energy as needed to reach my goal.
It means I will have to deny myself. It means a total abandonment to the will of God and to His work. It means to take up the cross and follow Him.
I am ready because I know my cross is special. It’s my cross.
