Sometimes the most challenging form of endurance is found in trying to stay with our priorities, commitments, and assignments. How easy it is for some of us to lose our way when the unexpected, and seemingly undeserved, surface in our lives? Greatness is best measured by how well an individual responds to the happenings in life that appear to be totally unfair, unreasonable, and undeserved. Sometimes we are inclined to put up with a situation rather than endure. To endure is to bear up under, to stand firm against, to suffer without yielding, to continue to be, or to exhibit the state or power of lasting.
Day by day we can make the effort to gain the power to last and to suffer without yielding. Inspiration and motivation are found in many places. We can also receive strength from studying the scriptures and praying constantly.
Marvin J. Ashton, “‘If Thou Endure It Well’,” Ensign, Nov 1984, 20
God doesn’t give us what we can handle,
He helps us handle what we are given.
