Meditation Moment: Indomitable Spirit

An indomitable spirit is a tenacious strength to persevere, and to rise above one’s self. Indomitable spirit is:

“…the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. It is the business of little-minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles to death.”

Thomas Paine, American Revolutionary

The indomitable spirit can see the goal he wants to accomplish. The Indomitable spirit has the wherewithal to stick to the task all they to the end – even if the end is decades in the making. Notice the tree!

“There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.”

Josiah Gilbert Holland, American novelist and poet

Don’t Quit!  Press on to the greater goal. Run the race laid before you with honor.

“Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone [even the rude], and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”

Galatians 6:9–10
