"Clare, ____ is so hard. I keep trying and failing. It's a daily struggle for me. Why can't the situation be easier?"
The open blank will look different for everyone. Maybe it's an addiction of yours, a certain issue in your marriage, your weight, or your self-confidence.
I remember a revelation I had a few years ago about a struggle that I've always had--it's hard because I've not given up. It's hard because I've realized the fight is worth it.
And just like this quote says--it's hard because I'm ALIVE--and that my friends, is a noble, good thing. So maybe today your situation doesn't need changed. Maybe your perspective & attitude does. If you feel the resistance, thank the Lord for that, because you have not become calloused and cold--you are ALIVE.
