Never pray for an easier life — pray to be a stronger person!Never pray for tasks equal to your power — pray for power equal to your tasks!
Then doing your work will be no miracle — you will be the miracle.
We must remember that Christ will not lead us to greatness through an easy or self-indulgent life. An easy life does not lift us up but only takes us down. Heaven is always above us, and we must continually be looking toward it.
Some people always avoid things that are costly,— Things that require self-denial, self-restraint, and self-sacrifice.
Yet it is hard work and difficulties that ultimately lead us to greatness,
for greatness is not found by walking the moss-covered path laid out for us through the meadow. It is found by being sent to carve out our own path with our own hands.
