In the business of pursuing your dreams the struggle is real. Not only is it real, the struggle is inevitable. When the tough times arrive it is really hard to see the light beyond the trees. You can find yourself asking, “Where is God in all this? Does the creator not see my pain? Does he not understand my desires?” I don’t know your belief system, but what I can say is that out of my struggles came growth.
Next week I will begin sharing a three part series called Beauty for Ashes. I going to describe the pivotal moment that I decided to become an entrepreneur, ultimately changing the trajectory of my entire life forever. I have made many bad decision in my life, some I am not too proud of. The one thing I can say about the struggles in my life is that in some way it has helped to shape my character. I would not be the person I am today had it not been for my struggles.
A little word of encouragement:
“Consider it a sheer gift friends, when test and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well developed, not deficient I any way” James 1:2-4
