At some level, there will be discomfort in getting from where you are to where you need to be. (Bart Blair, minister)

Reaching a desired goal or achieving some great accomplishment doesn’t just happen. As Blair suggests, we’ve all discovered that life is not that easy. Someone else has said, “Any change takes big commitment because all change involves some pain.” We may have to remind ourselves that if the goal is worthy, the discomfort is a small price to pay to achieve it.

Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. (Romans 8:18)
