You Are Going To Have To Choose

It Will Never Be Easy
It Will Never Be Easy

If you want to do great work, work that matters and makes a positive difference, work that multiplies and spreads, you are going to have to choose.

Do you ever think like this?

Do you want to make a difference, but find it challenging to get started? Have you gotten started, but find the path difficult?

This is why you are going to have to choose.

Jeff,

For me, the time that makes it difficult isn’t the start. Starting is not as hard for me as much as it is in the “growing weary” once I have started. I have to remind myself of a couple of Bible passages that help me to keep on going.

First is Galatians 6:9 – “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

Second was my life verse/passage when I graduated from college (every student had to read our life verse/passage at graduation). It is Isaiah 40:28-31 – “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

The thing is that I have not “arrived” and fully grasped all of that…I still grow weary, especially when I have been working so hard and the “end” or “solution” seems so far away. So I need these reminders.

Bob, timely comment you make here. Your choice from Isaiah is brilliant.
One of the most overlooked secrets to a successful life is learning the art of starting each day anew. o not compare to yesterday or tomorrow, but to simply live in the moment before us.
This is so challenging because it is not followed by many, and has never gained footing as a daily strategy.
And I believe the reason for this failure is profound: The concept is too simple.

Wishing you great triumph today, over all the things that tempt you to want to give up.
