Carry On

“By perseverance, the snail reached the ark.” – C H. Spurgeon

Perseverance is defined as – “steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.”

We’ve all experienced despair, discouragement, hopelessness, misery, pain, sorrow. At times we lose faith. We want to give up ….. to quit!

I know I have ….. but I was raised to never quit, to never give up, nor give in. Battle onward with your last ounce of strength. Keeping your faith strong along the way.

Recently, I’ve had a few, non-heart related torments in my life that have caused more than a few sleepless nights. My friends have been there to help me through these rough times, and I know life will be better in the long run.

If you have those days where you would like to give up …. DON’T ….. call, talk to your family, your friends …… lean on others and never, ever, ever, ever give up.


We MUST have and maintain our perseverance.

A song that has become my “theme song” through these rougher times, is called, “Carry On”. It’s by FUN. who also performed the song “What Do I Stand For”, that I wrote about HERE! (Click link to read)

Here is the official FUN. “Carry On” video ….

If you’d like to read the lyrics, they are here  ….

My favorite lyric is this ~

Cause we are 
We are shining stars 
We are invincible 
We are who we are 
On our darkest day 
When we’re miles away 
So we’ll come 
We will find our way home 

If you’re lost and alone 
Or you’re sinking like a stone 
Carry on 
May your past be the sound 
Of your feet upon the ground 
Carry on 

Carry on, carry on

Stay Calm
