Are you willing to do a little 'perspiring' for things you believe strongly in? Justice, equality, peace, freedom, fulfilling a dream, the Gospel?
Most things of great value are not achieved over night. One has to pray for perseverance and strength to hang on.
"Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration." - Thomas Edison
Remember Jesus' prayer in the garden of Gethsemane? He knew the task before him, but he needed to surrender his will to that of his Father. Is there a lesson for us in this? What do you think?
Luke 22:44 - And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
Have a blessed day,
