Have a think...

How easy is it to give up when things get tricky?

How difficult is it to keep on trying when we find something hard?

Persevering isn't easy, especially when the task is difficult.

In the Bible, we are told that our lives are like a race and we must keep on looking to Jesus as we run:

We should stand up for what we believe in and keep on praying for help because God said He would hear our prayers.

We must pray at all times, when we are in peace or during troubles, God  never sleeps nor slumbers. | Inspirational quotes, Quotes, Devotions

Think about how you have felt when you couldn't do something, but your persevered and eventually managed to do it. 

It feels great doesn't it and worth all the effort you have put in to achieve success.

The rainbow: A symbol of hope.

If we persevere through difficult times like the current lock down, we will eventually see better times and be able to see our friends and families again.

This is why the rainbow is seen as a symbol of hope - after or during the rain when the sunshine appears sometimes we see a beautiful rainbow reminding us that there is hope in every difficult situation we face.

Rainbows to show how grateful we are to our wonderful NHS...

Rainbows painted by the children of key workers in school!

And some created at home!

Showing our support for those who work for the NHS and sharing hope and happiness within our community...

'God puts rainbows in the clouds

so that each of us - in the dreariest

and most dreaded moments - can

see a possibility of hope.' 

 Mary Angelou (American poet)
