Hebrews 10:35-36 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
This encourages us believers to persevere in our Christian faith and conduct when facing pressure. Do not abandon our faith in times of persecution, but show by our endurance that our faith is real. Faith is the conviction base on past experience that God’s new and fresh surprises will surely be ours.
Let me share with you somethings that I have experience from persevering.

I wonder: how does a "united" independent company differ from a truly independent company? Is there any easy way for the casual observer to tell the difference? Is one approach inherently better? Does one result in cleaner taxis, lower fares, more courteous drivers, or less hair-raising rides through heavy traffic? Is the name really important?
The dictionary says a miracle is a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of the divine.
• a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences
an amazing achievement.

Over the years I have hoarded in my files and notebooks a number of things that have seemed significant to a consideration of a New Year. As we approach a new year, perhaps it is time to think about life and it's meaning. Robert Browning spoke about the close of one year and the beginning of another:
