As we turn our focus this month to the word TENACITY, the words determined and persistent come to mind. Yet, the word is also unique because it hints at a boldness in approach. You might possibly envision an athlete who is working toward a goal or maybe a co-worker trying to climb the corporate ladder with a single-minded focus on reaching his or her goal. BUT, have you ever thought of tenacity connected to your faith journey? Fixing our eyes on our Creator and bravely living out our days according to HIS will with a tenacity that sets us apart…
In the book of Hebrews we get a clear picture of how God wants us to approach our spiritual life in order to bring glory to Him and to reach out to others.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV)
We at Broken & Gracefully Loved will examine the word Tenacity this month and what it means to each of us. We also invite you to reflect on your own approach to traveling the path that God has laid out for you. Is God prompting you to go the extra mile? Is He guiding you to step out of your comfort zone? Is your Savior asking for boldness and determination from you at this exact moment in time? We pray for wisdom and clarity as we contemplate the “HOW” in regards to living out our faith.
