Posts Tagged ‘opposition’

: to persist in a state, enterprise, or undertaking in spite of counterinfluences, opposition, or discouragement. I like knuckle down.

This is worth the fight, if it wasn’t it wouldn’t hurt so much.

When we really follow Jesus, we shouldn’t be surprised when most folks think we’re weird and we’re faced with opposition.

The wind blows in Amarillo pretty much all the time. If you’re not accustomed to it, it makes many things way more difficult. You can’t just put something down and expect it to be there when you turn back around. A life pursuing an intimate relationship with God is like Amarillo, there is always wind but we can get used to it, expect it and even take comfort from it. We can lean in when facing its opposition or make extra progress when it’s at our back. It can also be like our new friend Ken said today, “When it’s a hundred and five you come to appreciate it.”
