Guest Post: Stay on don’t quit by Ngobesing Romanus

I simply love this inspiring poem by a fellow good friend, Ngobesing Romanus.

If you love this poem, find out more about his articles and poems at his blog!

It takes time to make it big;

It takes patience and courage

To excel;

To come out on top;

I know because I’ve lived it;

Many times a task has looked


And I have been tempted to give up;

But because I mustered the courage

And was patient enough to stay on,

I came out victorious.

Make no mistake;

If you are not ready to stay put,

Even though it hurts,

You will not make it;

If you have not the courage

To fight on;

And instead want it the quick way,


Great things are not meant for you.ts

The way to the top is stay on;

Patience pays.

    Hahaha! O my Brother, I do beg to differ! I have made it big! Yes I have but? None of such virtues can I attribute to yours truly. 🙂 But?

    Why am I claiming bigness when? I haven’t got two nickels to rub together– my furniture? Strong boxes covered with fancy shopping bags — my wardrobe? Facing its 7 yrs. of wear and? The fame of the best is not near my sight to be found? Haven’t sold a single copy of my books against the millions of copies sold by the best! 🙂

    Ah! But? In the sight of the King of the whole Universe–the One who has adopted me into His beloved? In HIs sight? The King reassures me on the daily basis, “Child? You are My child. I love you with everlasting love and? I will never leave nor forsake you.”

    A child of the King of the Universe, What more could I ever want for? How bigger can anyone get? O my Brother? I respectfully differ!

    No courage. No patience. Quit? More times than I care to remember. But? I am at the top of the mountain only by the power of love from on high and?

    Soon, very soon? All of us shall be singing together in the Presence of the King at the top of the mountain by the same power of love from on high that lifted me up there.

    Such is the King’s will and? His will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven. Hahaha! HalleluYah! 🙂

    BTW Our Father/Creator only help those HELPLESS ones. The weakest I became? The strongest His Being manifested in my weak ineffective carnal flesh & mind.:-)

    His love in my heart for all, thiaBasilia.

      Interesting. I found a similar post a few days ago. Yes, God should be the first priority in people’s lives. But He also wants us to work the best we can with the gifts we have. So yes for building virtues like patience and persistence.

        By all means patience and persistence are vital in our lives, no question about it. The point? Unless our Creator builds those things in us, build, build and keep building believe me? You’ll never finish building to the Master’s satisfaction. Unless He does the work, we builders work in vain. How the Master Creator builds those things in us? We learn obedience by the things we suffer doing our own building. 🙂

  3. Não vou dizer que é fácil e que nunca deu vontade de desistir, mas vale muito mais a pena continuar.

    And away we go! As it is written,
    FOR BEHOLD, the day comes that shall burn like an oven, and all the proud and arrogant, yes, and all that do wickedly and are lawless, shall be stubble; the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Master of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. [Isa. 5:21-25; Matt. 3:12.]

    But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy. And you shall tread down the lawless and wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the Master of hosts.

    [Earnestly] remember the law of Moses, My servant, the statutes and the ordinances which I commanded him on [Mount] Horeb [to give] to all Israel.

    Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Master comes. [Matt. 11:14; 17:10-13.] And he shall turn and reconcile the hearts of the [estranged] fathers to the [ungodly] children, and the hearts of the [rebellious] children to [the piety of] their fathers [a reconciliation produced by repentance of the ungodly], lest I come and smite the land with a curse and a ban of utter destruction. [Luke 1:17.]
    (Malachi 4:1-6)

    His love in my heart for all, thiaBasilia.
