If We Do Not Give Up


By Davalynn Spencer @davalynnspencer

When asked what advice I have for aspiring writers, I say, “Don’t quit.”
Sometimes I say, “Never give up.”
And often I add, “Keep writing.”

I know; my advice is boringly repetitive.

However, that’s the kind of stick-to-it-iveness required for most worthwhile endeavors.

It’s that simple.

One of the easiest things to do is quit.
One of the hardest things is not to.

Giving up is not an option when you have a clear directive, and many a cliché has been generated in support of that premise:

“Do or die.”
“Never say never.”
“Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

Look around this fall at the bountiful evidence of things that were small and seemingly insignificant last spring. Today they are bright pumpkins, colorful gourds, juicy apples. They were all worth the wait.

…at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

What is growing and maturing in your life that will someday be worth the wait, effort, and determination not to quit? Could it be prayer? Faith? Hope?
