The Power of Persistence

Uncategorized Feb 09, 2023

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” – Matthew 7:7-8

Recently, a mentor of mine was explaining to me that if you were to look a bit more closely at the words used here - ask, seek, and knock - they are continuous.

KEEP asking…
KEEP seeking…
KEEP knocking…

It made me realize how many times in my life I have stopped short because I already asked a few times and nothing happened.

“Already tried that…didn’t work.”

“Maybe this sin of mine is just my thorn in the flesh”

“I’ve done a few recovery programs before, Sathiya… still struggling though.
Why knock again?”

Because he who KEEPS asking receives…
He who KEEPS seeking will find…
And to him who KEEPS knocking, the door will be opened…

Whether you’re just diving into the recovery world or you’re years in, still wondering when things will finally change for you, just remember this…

If you don’t quit, you win

When I was in recovery (which was a grand total of 5 years from start to last relapse), I kept asking that God would make me a better man worthy of my future wife.

I kept seeking solutions that would help me quit porn FOREVER (not just for a long time).

And I kept knocking on the doors that I felt would lead me to that place of freedom.

There were a lot of failures along the way. Tons of mishaps. Tons of short-term stints followed by hard binges.

But each experience inched me closer.

If I would have stopped after year 4, I would have never made it!

KEEP asking.
KEEP seeking.
KEEP knocking.

You might be one more try away from full freedom.

Cheering you on,
Sathiya
