        Don't Give Up....  

      There is a wonderful parable about a man living in a cabin
      In the woods who, one night, woke up to see a bright light
      Shining in the cabin. He understood that it was God. God
      Said to him, “There is something I want you to do.”
      The man inquired what it was, and God responded, “There is a
      Big boulder in front of your cabin. I want you to go out
      There every day and push, and push, and push against that
      Boulder.”
      The man took God’s instructions seriously. Day after day for
      Many, many weeks he pushed against that boulder. But he
      Couldn’t budge it an inch. After awhile an idea came into
      His head, which he understood to be the voice of the devil.
      “Look, you don’t have to bother with this. You have done
      Your best. You won’t succeed at this. Accept that you have
      Failed. It is useless. Then just take it easy and do the
      Least amount of work you can.”
      Before the man would take that advice, however, he decided
      To pray. He prayed and prayed and prayed. “God, I have done
      What You asked me. I have been very faithful. Every day for
      Hours I have been pushing against that rock, but I have not
      Budged it an inch. I have failed.”
      Then God, with great compassion, answered. “Son, you are not
      A failure. I asked you to push against that rock, and you
      Were obedient. I never asked you to move it. I asked you to
      Push against it.
      “Because you have pushed faithfully and diligently against
      That rock every day, notice how strong your arms have
      Become. Your back is brown and sinewy, your legs are massive;
      You are in such better shape now than you were. You have
      Learned a lot because you have been faithful and obedient.”
      Then God said to the man, “You have trusted me. Now I will
      Move the rock.” That is the way God does things.
      So, when life is getting you down, PUSH.
      When you‘re having trouble on your job and things
      Are not working out well, PUSH.
      When the bills are high and the money is low, PUSH.
      When people aren’t responding to you in ways you hope and
      Want, PUSH.
      When people don’t understand you, PUSH.
      And what does PUSH mean?
      Pray Until Something Happens.
