Word of the Week – Week # 19

Hello and welcome!

This weeks word is inspired by my friend the knockin’ robin that you met last week in this post. Our word for this week is Perseverance.

According to Merriam Webster Perseverance is:

continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition the action or condition or an instance of perseveringSTEADFASTNESS

I have to admit, despite being annoyed by it, I kind of admired the robin’s perseverance assuming that his mission was to fend off what he believed was another male bird threatening his territory and perhaps his family – even if he was mistaken.

I have also considered the adage “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” This seems to prove my husbands theory, “That bird is crazy!”

I am happy to say that my perseverance in finding a solution for the robin’s problems seems to have paid off. I will share what I’ve done in my next post.

Romans 5:3-4

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Beautiful scripture. Its funny how someone else’s perseverance can annoy us, yet we are proud of our own . ( or maybe that is the difference between perseverance and persistence)
