Does God spur on your perseverance through trials?

LAKE OCONEE —  

Joseph Stowell, in his book, Through the Fire, talks about his daily runs: "I think of David Livingstone, the pioneer missionary to Africa, who walked over 29,000 miles.

His wife died early in their ministry and he faced stiff opposition from his Scottish brethren. He ministered half blind. His kind of perseverance spurs me on.

As I run, I remember the words in his diary as he speaks to God: Send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. Sever me from any tie but the tie that binds me to Your service and to Your heart."

What do you think about when you run or walk? I hope it is similar to David Livingstone. Wishing you much love and much light.
