Have you ever seen someone who decided to quit on life? They stop believing that there is any life in their body. Their organs begin to shut down. Then they are gone. The battle is over. But wait, what happens when we adjust ourselves to believe, have faith and trust that the battle isn't over. We will fight for every breath. We live out the rest of our days positively impacting others and building a legacy for others to live.
I would rather die in faith in God and hope in my fellow man than to cower out to thoughts of loss and despair. You persevere by focusing on the truth. You give yourself to the vision of a more constant reality than that of defeat.
