Moving Forward Through Difficulties

Last Update: October 29, 2014

I can't count how many times I have had students and colleagues that have gone through terrible trials. Health issues, financial crisis, even the death of a loved one.

Saint Nikolai of Zica once said:

"What is there that cannot happen to a man? Yet in every suffering one must have hope in God. Covered with festering sores and seated in his humiliation upon a dunghill, the righteous Job cried out: Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him! (Job 13:15)"

If you are going to a really tough time right now, it may cause you to reconsider your priorities and what you are involved with. It also might cause you to even want to quit.

What I want to encourage you with it this: in any area of life (but let's focus on business since this is WA) if something is truly a dream of yours, a passion of yours, a real GOAL, let the difficulties fuel that journey, not prevent it. You have to hope in God, knowing He can help you accomplish what He has placed you here to do.

You've got to move forward through difficulties to accomplish what you know in your heart you must!

I have no idea why I am writing this right now, so I assume there is someone who will read this that really needs that encouragement.

I hope you are all having a great week. You are AWESOME!

Daniel
