Small Hard Things

Some of my “small” hard things:

1. Getting up on time in the morning.
2. Saying a kind word to the person who always gets on your nerves.
3. Reading and studying God’s Word.
4. Praying continually.
5. Standing up for what is right.
6. Not remaining silent when it is right to speak.
7. Restraining the unkind word or sarcastic response.
8. Being consistent.
9. Doing the right thing at the right time or doing what you are supposed to do when you are supposed to do it.
10. Finishing a project.
11. Being organized.
12. Remaining unseen.
13. Reading a book from beginning to end.
14. Thinking on things that are pure.
15. Taking initiative.
16. Caring for the unwanted.
17. Sacrificing your time.
18. Remaining cross-centered.

How about you? What are some “small” hard things that you struggle with?

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Galatians 6:14

May this continue to be your prayer…today and all the days of your life.

We love you,
