We don’t get to choose everything in life.
Prayer and action are the solution to that reality.
There are things we need to do. Actions we need to take. It is not a matter of praying and then doing. It is praying while doing. It is in the mud striving. You don’t have a choice you are in the thick of it and you have to keep going forward. If you look back to see how far you have come it will only discourage you. You just pray and hope for comfort in the pain.
Every human being goes through trials, each with an opportunity to become more, to have a story of victory. The hardest story to have is overcoming comfort. Our safe homes carry us safely to the grave. Live a life outside of yourself. Sometimes when we choose to struggle we overcome the grave.
