I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. (Thomas Edison) 

We give Edison a lot of credit for making life easier for us with the invention of electric bulbs, phonographs, movie cameras, storage batteries, and much more. How many times do you suppose he felt like quitting when one of his experiments failed? Unlike many of us, he didn’t give up. He kept trying and success found him still trying. What an example of persistence!

Patient endurance is what you need now (Hebrews 10:36).

We also pray that. . . you will have all the endurance and patience you need (Colossians 1:11).
