I remember the conversation I had with a certain somebody recently.
It was about my journey through school and how very soon I would be a graduate (that is exciting).
It brings to mind how tough and difficult and challenging and long we feel a journey through any phase is or would be when in reality the joy at the end overrides the struggles.
I take the liberty to use the phrase “the end justifies the means”. The end justifies the journey.
This is not to say that the journeys in life will not be hard or daunting, it is to say that it wouldn’t all matter when you reach your goal and get your price.
Take for instance as a Christian especially in this generation, it is hard to maintain a stand (but with God, the Holy Spirit, everything is possible), difficult to hold on but I tell you that just the hope, not even the real thing, the hope of enternal glory is enough to make it all worth it.
Education is hard but thinking about sitting in your office doing what you enjoy is and should be enough to keep you going.
The same for all aspects of life.
Back to my analogy, I have three more semesters and then I would be done with my first degree.
Just the thought of leaving my school is enough to encourage me when I meet with difficulty.
The end, our goals, our rewards at the end of each of the roads we take in life should be the reason we fight a little longer, hold on a little bit more, face the challenge with more confidence.
After all, the end justifies the means.
