Tackling Perseverence

For this edition of Tackle It Tuesday I am working on staying faithful and persevering!

Sinclair and I watched a spider chase a fly around for a good 10 minutes yesterday. It was amazing. This spider who was much slower then the fly kept following this fly around our screen. The spider never gave up. I thought there was no way this spider would ever catch this fly. But through the long haul the spider never gave up. She lunged at him a few times after getting close enough to him, but he kept on escaping. Finally after all her hard work she caught him, wrapped him in her thread, and started sucking.
This reminds me of staying true to your calling and never giving up. When God reveals to us what He wants us to do, it is not always going to be easy. Actually it is usually the harder path to take. We will have trials, and our dinner might escape us once in a while. But we must be faithful. Trusting God and not our flesh.Abraham and Sarah had doubts once in a while, they even came up with their own idea of how to work things out. In the end God was true to His promise and He granted them a child with the perfection of His timing. Sometimes He has us wait awhile so that He gets the glory and not us.

Here is Miss. Spider after her catch.

  1. Wow, what a cool video and how patient you must be to sit there and watch and video tape for us...thank you!

    Thanks also for stopping by and commenting on my sisters birthday mosaic. Yes, sisters are very special. I only have the one. Sometimes we each wish we had more sisters as we enjoy each other so much, but maybe we wouldn't enjoy each other so much if there were other sisters. I'm just glad God blessed me with this one. He gave me a good one :-)

    Talk to you again soon.
