Is This Worth It?

The choices the Lord presents me often look like this:  Pick one, Tonya:  The Easy Way;  The Right Way.  Why the two don't match up is a forever unanswered query. I've often thought, "Well, am I going to do this the easy way or the hard way?  The hard way is unquestionably better, but maybe the easy will be good enough."  Problem is, the easy way will never yield the results you will achieve "the hard way."  So, in my house shoes, I pad to bed this night, thanking God that there is one way. The right way. And it is He who promises to give me strength and grace to power through into victory. Oh yes, it's worth it. In the scheme of eternity, a negligible effort. And that's where I live, joyfully.

I said that not Tonya. She was signed in on my computer and I didn't know.

So true Tonya. My prayer these days is, "Lord, don't let me go to the left, and don't let me go to the right, just keep me on the straight and narrow path of following You".

Thanks for sharing : )

This is so true--and the results are always worth the time. It just takes so long to see them sometimes :)

The right way is rarely the easy way, but it is always rewarding and worth it. Love your blog! :-)
