Are we continuing in the right direction?

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. (Thomas A. Edison) Do you give up easily? Or are you one of those tenacious individuals that will never say die? I used to be in the 'never say die' camp, but as I have grown a little older (and hopefully a little wiser), I am probably somewhere in the middle now. I don't give up too easily, but I don't beat a dead horse, either! My friends, do not be surprised at the terrible trouble which now comes to test you. Do not think that something strange is happening to you. So those who suffer as God wants should trust their souls to the faithful Creator as they continue to do what is right. (I Peter 4:12, 19) Testing comes - count on it. You can give up easily, walking away totally defeated; finish a bit of the test, then walk away; or hold on for dear life until you convince yourself you know the reason for the test, all the while missing the real reason.
