Commitment: Can you stand the rain?

You know, in my opinion one of the easiest things to do is start something.

I know some of you are looking at the screen right now saying, “What?" but it's the truth.

Someone gets an idea, then they started, and at first things go great. Then it gets less popular or they run into a snag. That's where you find out how much it really meant to them. How did New Edition say it, "sunny days everybody loves them. Tell me baby can you stand the rain."

That's not just a jam, but a serious question. Who is willing to be there when the times get rough? Who won't give up even though quitting would be the easiest way out? Who's in it for the long-haul?

The sad part is as much as a lot of us would like to say we are the truth is we aren't. I myself have claimed I wanted to do things and step into things, but when it didn't happen exactly how I wanted to or the glory didn't come immediately I said forget it.

We like convenience and commitment isn't always about that.

Thank God he puts his children before convenience because if he got rid of us just because we didn't show glory immediately I don't know where any of us would  be.

We have to remember that for one to reach success or fulfill their purpose they must be dedicated to what will bring them there. Whether that means working out a marriage, finishing school, forgiving someone who has hurt you, or forgiving yourself; you must see it through.

God is not a God of giving up. He's a God of victory.

So, whatever you must fulfill or conquer to reach what he has for you see you through and watch him work.
