Hitting a Brick Wall + Get my Free Book
Ever experienced hitting a brick wall. A wall so high and strong that we are tempted to quit. You see God allows brick walls to exist for a simple reason:
Brick walls are there for a reason. They’re not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.
The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it bad enough. They’re there to stop the other people
– Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
I remember a story about a man who had to face a large rock that was blocking his way. He kept on pushing and pushing to no avail. For days, he would wake up early to push the large rock and it didn’t move an inch. After three months, he went to God and complained. “Lord why won’t you move the stone?” But God was silent.
After a year of trying to move the rock daily, he looked at the mirror and was surprised to see a different man. He saw a man with big biceps and a strong upper and lower body. It was then that he realized that the reason the rock was there was to build him up as a man.
Men, never look at the brick walls in your life as a hindrance to your calling. It is placed there for a purpose. So get up and break those walls and build your muscles.
