Persevere-Life’s preserver persevere 3 P’s

My dad always said, “Follow the 3 P’s “perseverance, persistence, and patience.”  The 3P’s are important to my business, decision-making, and leadership.  Persistence, many people have difficulty in pursuing their business dreams, and as a result they lack persistence.  I remember while waiting for my acceptance to nursing school.  I decided to work at a factor.  The job duties included making the light fixtures for street lights.  Of course it involved a production line.  My particular role included electrical checks. One particular day, the foreman approached me and said, “Carolyn the boss here is very impressed with your work, you have a bright future here, before she continued, I thanked her and said politely “no, I’m a nurse and waiting for nursing school,” She said, “that’s great but you probably want get accepted.”  I smiled and continued my job.  That evening, I’d received a letter of acceptance.  I arrived at work the next morning completed my day, sought the foreman and politely with a smile said, “I thought you should be the first to know, I’ve been excepted in nursing school, I’d like my last day to begin at that time the following Friday.” She smiled and said, “I always knew you would, I wanted you to be persistent.” I laughed and we bided our good byes.
Perseverance the ability to continue moving forward when life’s obstacles blocks moving from one level to the next for example, you decide to join a multilevel marketing business, but you find that investing in yourself becomes challenging, look beyond the challenge see the benefits on the other side.  Pursue the route until an avenue is open.  Right now college students are struggling to remain in school.  Students must persevere. Look for other ways to complete college.  During down time take a few classes on-line.  Check for extension courses keep your mind stimulated don’t focus on “why me” pity parties are so boring.  Perseverance persistence and patience will lead us to success.

Patience this is an area that many of us have difficulty with.  Patience’s requires daily attention.  Patience exercises may be implemented by observing your daily activities.  Yesterday, I went to the DMV the lines were long and this was a test of patience I could see impatience’s so clearly people were anxious, agitated and frustrated.  Of course we all need to exercise patience on a daily basis. It is required even in network marketing, and recruiting.

The Wisdom of King David-Solomon the King

The Wisdom of King David

King David firmly establishes his son Solomons’ reign as King ! Does he have the wisdom to sit on the throng?

Reading 1 kings this morning reveals a father establishing his son before his passing.  The dialog suggested someone was speaking and listening attentively during this wise counseling moment.  The words of King David filled my heart with joy because a father and his son shared a loving moment that would confirm, edify and establish his rightful reign in years to come.  What a blessed word on father’s day.”

King David was up in age and ill, no covers could keep him warm, his servants called for a young girl to keep him warm and take care of him during his illness they identified her as a nurse.  King David had many trials and challenges before he was established as king.  Remember King Saul begin to despise him and wanted him dead, he ran for months hiding in hills, and keeping an open eye for he knew death was chasing him.  But God had a bigger plan for David and the plan was to crown David King.

King David and his son Solomon spent time together establishing his future.  King David gave Solomon wise counsel and guidance.  He said the following:

Take courage and be a man

Observe the requirements of the Lord your God and follow all his ways

Keep each of his laws, regulations, stipulations so you will be successful with all that you do and where ever you go.

King David continued, If you do this the Lord will keep his promise  he made to me.  If your descendants live as they should follow me faithfully with all their heart and soul one of them will always sit on the throne of Israel.  Finally King David shared with his son Solomon people to take care of.  He also, identified Solomon enemies.  God establishes leaders to reign over his people the throng was set for King Davids descendants.  King David gave Solomon a firm foundation of wisdom and knowledge. He taught Solomon how to live and reign as a leader.  He confirmed trust and loyalty.  King David gave Solomon specific guidance on what it meant to  be king.  He reminded his son to live in the ways of God.

A father gives guidance, support and love.  Fathers establish and confirm and affirm the great qualities of their children.  Fathers remain near by to protect and nurture as their sons and daughters grow into men and women.  Fathers don’t abandon when trials, and circumstances engulf their lives.  Fathers stand strong and set good examples for their generations to come.  Fathers learn to love unconditionally even when disappointments are set before them.  Fathers boldly say “I love you” even if their father had never uttered these words before.

F= faithful

A = assuring

T = trustworthy

H = helper

E = established in love

R = renders grace and mercy
