In my Oswald Chambers reading I Learned that noble things are difficult. My application is to view my journey like a Navy SEAL, I am pursuing What and Who /God has designed me to be. The hard things are all designed to make me more fit, so bring them on. I welcome them as training opportunities to fight for freedom; freedom from sin's entanglement.
Ti 6:12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
