Hard Work

Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them. (Ann Landers)

We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.” (Chuck Swindoll)

In our spiritual lives there are times of breakthrough, and that means some tough work. It means tough work in prayer. It means tough work in all kinds of areas.

In a prayer time last night one of the things that came up in our prayer was to not stop pushing in prayer now because there is a little resistance. Then the thought came to us, “Don’t stop in prayer when we get a little success, either!”

There are times of resistance right before key times of breakthrough. How many breakthroughs are missed because we stopped short in prayer?

Set your heart straight, be steadfast,
and don’t act hastily in a time of distress.
Hold fast to God
and don’t keep your distance from him,
so that you may find strength
at your end. (Sirach 2:2-3, CEB)

  1. As I read the footprints in the sand, it is about being carried during all those times we thought we were alone. There is only one set of footprints. It came also to myself, that there is also only one set of footprints in our successes.

  2. And I like this quote too:
    “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” ~Thomas Edison.
    I put it on the refrigerator as a reminder, but I think we all ignore it now. LOL
