When the Going Gets Tough
If you are the type of person who gives up — quits when things get too difficult or hard — know that just because you quit doesn’t mean the issue goes away, or that you will not have any more problems in that area.
We need to understand that avoiding something doesn’t mean it goes away. So, dealing with learning to walk through issues is the only way to really get rid of problems. Solving them — not quitting on them —makes them go away. Everyone faces challenges; most, at times, want to throw in the towel. But there are those that never quit or throw in the towel. They look at their circumstance and believe there is a solution or a way to settle or deal with the issue.
People must stay committed to working through the issue or resolving the problem because, for the most part, problems don’t ever just go away. Some things resolve themselves, but not all do. So we must commit to dealing with the problem, resolving the problem — the hardship — until it is resolved. It takes the ability of courage, and commitment, to do it.
Be courageous; be of good cheer, for we know our heavenly Father will never leave us nor forsake us.
Just a thought,
