      Love & Blessings,

      A man was sleeping one night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled
      with light, and God appeared. The Lord told the man he had work for him
      to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. The Lord
      explained that the man was to push against the rock with all his
      might...  

      So, this the man did, day after day. For many years he toiled from sunup
      to sundown, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive surface
      of the unmoving rock, pushing with all his might!  

      Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, feeling that
      his whole day had been spent in vain. Since the man was showing
      discouragement, the adversary (Satan) decided to enter the picture by
      placing thoughts into the weary mind: (He will do it every time)!  

      ‘You have been pushing against that rock for a long time and it hasn’t
      moved.’ Thus, he gave the man the impression that the task was
      impossible and that he was a failure. These thoughts discouraged and
      disheartened the man.  

      Satan said, ‘Why kill yourself over this? Just put in your time, giving
      just the minimum effort; and that will be good enough.’ That’s what
      the weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a matter of Prayer
      and to take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.  

      ‘Lord,’ he said, ‘I have labored long and hard in Your Service, putting
      all my strength to do that which You have asked. Yet, after all this
      time, I have not even budged that rock by half a millimeter. What is
      wrong? Why am I failing?’  

      The Lord responded compassionately, ‘My friend, when I asked you to
      serve Me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against
      the rock with all of your strength, which you have done.  

      Never once did I mention to you that I expected you to move it. Your
      task was to push. And now you come to Me with your strength spent,
      thinking that you have failed..  

      But, is that really so? Look at yourself. Your arms are strong and
      muscled, your back shiny and brown; your hands are callused from
      constant pressure, your legs have become massive and hard.  

      Through opposition you have grown much, and your abilities now surpass
      that which you used to have. True, you haven’t moved the rock. But your
      calling was to be Obedient and to push and to exercise your Faith and
      trust in My Wisdom. That you have done. Now I, my friend, will move the
      rock.’

      At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own intellect
      to decipher what He Wants, when actually what God wants is just simple
      obedience and faith in Him.  

      By all means, exercise the Faith that moves mountains, but know that it
      is still God Who moves the Mountains.  

      When everything seems to go wrong..........................Just P.U.S.H.

      When the job gets you down..................................Just
      P.U.S.H.  

      When people don’t do as you think they should.............Just P.U.S.H.  

      When your money is ‘gone’ and the bills are due...........Just P.U.S.H.  

      When people just don’t understand you .....................Just P.U.S.H.

      P = Pray  

      U = Until  

      S = Something  

      H = Happens  

      Pass this on to all your loved ones and friends who may need it; they
      may get it just in time. ‘Though no one can go back and make a brand new
      start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.’  

      Friends are like quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings
      have trouble remembering how to fly. May God Bless You.  

      Just Hold ON!!!   P.U.S.H!
