Sometimes it's as easy as "doing the work" and sometimes it's gets as hard as "doing the REQUIRED work". Doing the required work even when it becomes enduring and tiresome. Continuing to do the required work when you look to the left and the right and it seems that others are not having to work as hard, their path is easier, they have passed you, their family is well put together, they smile, they make more money than you, have completed college, their kids are smarter, better dressed, they don't have to work... whatever... you keep working diligently. What you don't see is those others whose family has worked hard so their path can be easier, the prayers said in spite of tribulation that keeps that smile, the work required to make that money, the long nights of consistently doing HW and work put in to that child, the extra hours and time spent to make sure that child is dressed nicely to instill importance of self esteem and self worth. The bible says work without Faith is dead and so is Faith without Work. Stay diligent, looking only to the left and the right to remind yourself of what's possible. Look down at your work and allow God to direct your path instead of looking ahead and trying to direct your own. #MylessonLearned
PS. You cannot be so involved in other people's paths, lives, situations that you neglect to put in the required work in your own path, life, situations.. etc.
