Atta girl, Sunny, keep going. Here are a few quotes from the devotion I sent out yesterday.....they are really good
Challenges come so we can grow and be prepared
for things we are not equipped to handle now.
When we face our challenges with faith, prepared
to learn, willing to make changes, and if necessary,
to let go, we are demanding our power be turned on.

STICK TO IT
According to William S. Banowsky, the story of one of America's greatest leaders is actually a story of repeated failures and dogged persistence:
In 1831 he failed in business.
In 1832 he was defeated for the state legislature.
In 1833 he failed again in business.
In 1834 he was elected to the state legislature.
In 1835 his sweetheart died.
In 1836 he had a nervous breakdown.
In 1838 he was defeated for Speaker.
In 1840 he was defeated for Elector.
In 1843 he was defeated for Congress.
In 1846 he was elected for one term to Congress.
In 1848 he was defeated again for Congress.
In 1855 he was defeated for the Senate.
In 1856 he was defeated for Vice President.
In 1858 he was defeated again for the Senate.
In 1860 he, finally, was elected President of the United States.
And these are just a few of the rough spots in the life of Abraham Lincoln.
Someone said, "Failure is the line of least persistence." My mother called it "stick-to-it- iv-ness." It generally boils down to a healthy combination of faith and hard work, and it usually means success.
Are you feeling discouraged? Perhaps you just need to give it one more try.
