Do you know how to differentiate insistently from PERSISTENT? The insistent is every individual who even wrong, keeps the error, even failing, keeps the fault, even striding to the hole, he goes straight into the abyss, even GOD telling him to change his route, he walks in contrary to what GOD ordered, even seeing everything at his side become chaos, he prefers to live in the middle of the hurricane.
I’M NOT LIKE THAT.
I am a PERSISTENT, who is every individual who persists, who does not give up fighting, who keeps a huge effort to change what is wrong, who recognizes his mistakes, his faults, is every individual who does not have a closed heart, who does not have the petrified soul and that gives its way to the Lord, because it recognizes that only He is the Truth and the Life. The PERSISTENT does not give up fighting, even if the situations seem contrary and difficult, he does not surrender because he knows that his target is worth it, it is every individual who does not faint because he lives under the Word of God. It is every individual who does not give up fighting in the midst of the obstacles of life, who ‘climb’ the ‘mountain’ of problems with the certainty that victory will be at the top of life. It is every individual who does not bow his head, who even sad and downcast, does not give up, for his strength comes from God.
That is why I am persistent with God, for even in the means of struggles, difficulties, problems, trials and deprivations He is by my side, he has never abandoned me and is always with me, giving me love, care, attention and blessings.
So it is also with my wife, even in struggles, difficulties, problems, trials and deprivations she has always been by my side, has never abandoned me and is always with me, giving me love, care and attention. I will never stop being persistent with her, because she is worth fighting for.
And with my sons and daughters – my family – it’s also like this, even in struggles, difficulties, trials and deprivations they are always here and I there with them, they never abandoned me and they are always with me, giving me love, affection, headaches (healthy) and above all, respect.
I’m not pushy, I’m PERSISTENT. Did you understand the difference?
