#MondayThoughts: Test of Endurance

May you find the strength of will and the grace of endurance to overcome every challenge.

– Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

There will be hurdles we must jump

And then there will be more

There will be mountains to climb

Oceans and seas to cross

And then there will be more

Life can present a battle of wills

Or a test of faith

How much can you handle?

How much can you take?

You really don’t know until you can’t take anymore

But if your focus and faith is there

Despair will have no steam to rise up

As long as you find the strength to stand up

Look at it all as a way of building your strength up

Mentally, physically and spiritually

Once you’ve established that you will make it through

There is no way in the world that anything’s going to stop you
