If we only did things that were easy, we wouldn't do much. If we only did things that were fun or enjoyable or that we felt had a high chance of success and satisfaction, we would do even less. Much of life is full of difficult stuff. Hard stuff. Unenjoyable stuff. Those things are also the CORRECT things to do. They are the MEANINGFUL things to do. They are the things we MUST do. Just because it is hard, it doesn't make it wrong.
Lord, help me to realize that I need to rejoice not only in the easy and fun things, but in the difficult stuff because that is the stuff that matters.
