It takes having a goal, working hard to achieve it and being persistent in the face of adversity to be successful. But even doing all of these things well is no a guarantee of success. Sometimes because life just happens. At other times because things get complicated in unexpected ways. And perhaps most significantly and surprisingly, because people often end up sabotaging themselves. While you can’t change the attitude, control the actions or cause people who do these things to act differently, you can do something. Or, more precisely, God and you can do something together: pray without ceasing, be compassionate, share honestly and never stop loving. You may wonder whether this is enough. Well it is. In fact, it’s more than enough. Because it’s when you trust the power of God that you start seeing miracles.
