Persistent Belief

Have you ever persisted in a task for years despite legal opposition and a total lack of visible success? What would motivate you (or anyone) to persist? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1114).

Even though I have lived a limited life often filled with intimidation (perhaps because of this very fact), I concurrently have always held an indomitable belief that I will make a significant and broad contribution. Now that I am in my sunset years and should on all accounts be letting go of this belief, the conviction continues to persist. Perhaps God knows that I am a weak vessel that requires such an assurance to continue even minimal performance. I have long since ceased looking for a reason why this belief persists, I simply accede to its unrelenting sway and influence in my daily behavior. I am very much the backroom dishwasher cradling an abiding certitude that one day he will be king.
