There are lots of things that can be difficult: being consistent with exercise, missions trips, hostile or dicey conversations, regulating ones eating habits & lots more. I don’t like to do tough stuff, nor did Jesus. I say this because of His words in Gethsemane, “If possible, please take this cup from Me.”
So how do we go about doing tough stuff? Here are a few suggestions & I’d be keen to get your ideas in the comments as well!
- Keep the end goal in mind: what is your desired outcome?
- Be wholly present in the difficulty because often these struggles need our whole attention, energy & talents
- Pray: divine help is always an upgrade!
- Surrender to God’s will even when it conflicts with your desires 🙂
