Have you ever dug a hole? Have you ever dug a hole at the beach, in the sand? My kids do it all of the time. It is fun. It is fun because it is easy. Have you ever dug a hole for a fence post in a field that is mostly rock? It sucks. It takes time ... a lot of time and a lot of sweat. It is not only hard but difficult. I would much rather be at the beach. And that is our problem. We like the easy option more than the difficult option. Have you ever seen a 10 year old sand castle? There is a reason why you haven't.
Lord, help me to choose the right path, especially when that path is hard/difficult.
