Survival mode

May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ. 2 Thess. 3:5

Powering through life in survival mode can cause us to put our hearts in neutral. Jesus did not go to the cross to survive but to endure. Endurance develops toughness so that we can remain faithful and tenderness so that we can remain loving when we face situations that require selflessness, patience, and sacrifice

Lord help me to endure even if I don’t survive.
