"Nothing Is The Hardest Thing I've Ever Tried To Do"

One day while sick with a day to rest completely through;

I learned that nothing is the hardest thing I've ever tried to do.

A heart attack does not kill the man, a phrase often stated untrue.

An attack today is a warning given whereby our life we may accrue.

It is heart failure that kills the man and takes a life come due.

I learned that in this life and all that I may go through;

That it is living today and not dying that I want to do.

An attack can often strengthen and trials to most are not new.

Failure will happen many times before our life is adieu.

But it is accepting failure as the end that sends our life askew.

Today as you fall rise up and walk again with strength renewed.

And  if I must fail today, let it be at doing nothing and to;

Teach me that nothing is the hardest thing I've ever tried to do.

Written by Bob Wood

 Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

I love to work so much I sometimes over do it.  I love to see land or a piece of wood take on a new shape and character by work that I am allowed to do with it.  Some of my first attempts at doing are often a mess but even though not quite a success; I so enjoyed learning.  One man while reflecting on all that I have done stated that I had done about everything.  I said, "not yet, but I'm working on it."  This is sort of like the old fellow when asked if he had lived there all of his life, he said, "not yet."  We failed at our first attempt to walk or to ride a bicycle but just look at the joy that came later.  Failure is a part of success.  Peter sank while trying to walk on the water but he did not stay there.  When Christ offered His hand in help, Peter gladly accepted.  It is accepting failure that really hurts.  Be a doer today.  Quit fearing failure and when you do fail; brush yourself off and go at it again.  May God Really Bless You!  Keep shining and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance; you pray for me.
