We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough. (Helen Keller, lecturer & author))
We might think this is a gross overstatement until we realize who said it. Helen Keller suffered severe disabilities including being blind and deaf. But, with the persistent help of caring teachers, she learned and achieved far more than most fully abled people. Instead of grieving over our handicaps, we must be persistent and give our best in order to achieve.
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him (James 1:12).
