Persevere!

Hang in there

Justice rides a slow horse but it always overtakes.This was one of my mother’s favorite quotes and it is perfect during this MLK, Jr. weekend.

What is justice?  Who gets it? Justice comes for those who can wait it out and see things through.  Winston Churchill reminds us, If you are going through hell, keep on going.”

So as we wait for the tide to change, here are a host of reminders and affirmations that we can read or write to help us stay filled with expectancy.

  • Persevere!
  • Hang in there!
  • Hold on!
  • Grab ahold and don’t let go!
  • Don’t give up!
  • Don’t give in!
  • Hang tight!
  • Change is coming!
  • Only believe!
  • Keep the faith!
  • Be encouraged!
  • Cling to hope!
  • Justice prevails!

We can use some of these as we swim through our challenges and struggle to remain buoyant and stay afloat until we reach sturdier and safer shores.  When we feel weary or disconcerted, we can remember those who marched, cried and toiled before our time.  They too questioned whether things would ever change.

As we enjoy this longer weekend and pay homage to the life of Dr. King, we can feel quite certain that justice will be served. Though the horse may travel slowly in our lives, if we prevail, we will see him overtaking all of the mishaps. He will then appear in all of his glory saddled with that good news!
