I want to embody every aspect of this word. When I read the definition I found myself saying yeas and amen to every part of it. Definition: To abide is to wait; to pause; to stay; to continue in a place; to remain stable or fixed in some state or condition; to be left; to dwell, to reside; to stand ready for; to await for someone; watch for; to endure without yielding; to withstand; await defiantly; to encounter; to persevere; to stand up under; to await submissively; accept without question; submit to. YES and AMEN. I want to be that for Jesus.
