The Road Less Travelled
Effort. Time. Most things in life take both of these. It can feel like the list of things that need to be done is endless. It is so easy to get caught in the repetitive list of things that ‘need’ to get done that it is easy to forget about the things in life that matter.

It can be easy to forget about spending quality time with friends and family,  to just exist in a bubble and forget to be intentional about relationships. It can be easy to hide emotions and hurt, rather than do something about them. It can be easy to be passive, rather than stand up for what you believe in. It can be easy to find life so overwhelming that the easy way can feel like the only way.

Whether you open your Bible or a newspaper, the reality that humans struggle immediately confronts you. And this can feel like just a bit too much, particularly when you are struggling yourself. If there is an easy way out of a hard situation, it can be tempting, or even seem like our only option.

But Hard isn’t always bad, and good isn’t always easy. Sometimes it’s worth finding and choosing the harder path. Despite the extra struggle and confrontation, this path can be worth it.
