Don't Give Up!

My God son is one of the most adorable two and a half year old you will ever meet. He has such a huge curiosity for life, a vibrant imagination, and is brilliant beyond his age. Sometimes you may catch him with a little mischievous smile on his face, but then there are times he spoils you by the pats he gives you on your back while telling you how much he missed you during the day.  All in all he is a normal two year old, but as his Ga Ma (his way of calling me God mom), I could not be more proud of him. 

I walked out of the bathroom to find him sitting on the cold tile floor with a very sad look on his face and without even asking what was wrong, he blurted out, "I give up!" Little did he know, I already knew what he was talking about, but I wanted him to explain why he felt this way. "I can't find my movie car backpack Ga Ma." This backpack is one of four that he owns. It goes with him in each room of the house, in the car, to church, to Nana's house, and to wherever else he can take it. Even though he has a batman and a spiderman one, I believe movie cars is his favorite. I proceeded to tell him where he would be able to find his backpack and his dejected little face was quickly turned into a smile.

Throughout the day I thought about him sitting on the tile floor and telling me that he gives up. How many times in life have I said those very same words. LOL...I think it was just a few days ago. Sometimes in life we get thrown some very harsh curve balls, and there are times we truly just want to throw in the towel. But, I encourage you, whatever it may be, a dream, a relationship, school, or work, don't give up. The struggle will only make you stronger.  Perseverance is the key to your victory.  DON'T GIVE UP!  James 1:2-5

Just a thought....
