Do you ever find yourself discouraged even when you know you’re doing the right thing? Last night, I said to Ian, “I quit. I’m not doing the book. I’m not doing the blog. I’m done.”
Things were just getting too hard. Too overwhelming. I feel like all I think about is the book, and yet I’ve made no progress (at least not visible to me.) I’ve missed my writers group meeting for two weeks. I’m bummed.
So I prayed last night. I prayed for God to make it very clear. What am I supposed to do?
This morning I’m hopeful again. I’ll work hard. I’ll try my best if this is what I’m supposed to do.
But it won’t be easy. I don’t think He ever said it would be.
So, expect obstacles. Expect trouble. Even affliction. But press on. Press on. Press on. The reward will be worth it in the end.
Here I go again.
