There are obstacles between me and my dream. I believe those obstacles are there to remind me to think everything through, don't hurry. I believe they are there to build character and strength. I believe overcoming them will provide success. Simply going around them might seem the wiser choice to some...but I believe going around them won't be the wise decision. They are there to overcome, to bring success when I do overcome them, and to keep me working hard toward my goal.
Hebrews 12: 1 says "...let us run with perseverance
the race marked out for us..."
Those obstacles are there to remind me I must persevere, endure. Without obstacles, what is there to endure??
Philippians 3:14 says "I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me..."
Obstacles or not, I will press on.
