Tenacity


Tenacity - Silas Nelson.jpg

A hurricane of thoughts bombarding my mind
Feelings of doubt stealing my peace
An emotional roller coaster taking me for a ride
Whipping around
Up and down
Bouncing from side to side
“Hold on!”, he says

“Tenacity”

That’s the secret
That’s the key
Past the first hurdle
Phew! I can breathe
But wait! Here comes another
And again He says,

“Tenacity”

Heart is heavy
Doubts galore
A blow from one side, then the other
Spirit falls to the floor
“Get up!”, I say to myself because I know
There’s only one way to overcome

“Tenacity”

What does tenacity mean to you?  

Do you have any examples of tenacity in your life?  It could be someone you know or admire. Or maybe a time where you, yourself have been tenacious.
