Some of the most beautiful locations on earth are not easy to get to. Getting to them may require getting on a plane, rowing across a rapid, or hiking up a rocky or overgrown path. Perhaps it’s a smooth terrain, but the distance between point A to point B is incredibly long. However, once we stay the course, we eventually arrive at a beautiful destination that makes the trip all worth it. We should have this picture in mind when we go through life’s difficult roads.
As this quote, by Zig Ziglar, illustrates, difficulties are like big rocks or thick bushes along a path that leads to a beautiful destination. We can only see and experience the view by staying the course.
