Thomas Edison "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." This is so good! How many times have I missed out on something because I just didn't feel like putting in the work, or that it seemed like too much effort? Work and effort should not be a turnoff! There are great rewards from putting in the work, and the most successful people in the world will tell you that they work the hardest to get where they are. And, May I say that as Christians we are sort of susceptible to passivity? We have this tendency to pray for God to move in a certain way and then we just sit back. God wants to work with us! We are co-laborers with Christ. So do the work... besides, if it's God's work, done God's way, it might not even feel like work at all.
