Pressing Forward when Life and time seem pressed.

I was emailing my friend Dan Eggenschwiler and decided to pass on my final thought...
I wrote to him
...Life and time just seems pressed right now all the way leading up to this July/August when life will undergo some big changes for my living situation here in New Zealand, so kinda stressed at the moment, but i had a really good moment of revelation yesterday:

God made me to love challenges... why should this be any different. I would do it to myself in other ways if i didn't have these challenges, and although they may stress me out and seem too much to handle, solving these problems and pressing through is exactly what makes good men great and the triumph that much more sweet.  

Like so many war movies or the Pursuit of Happiness or whatever you want to compare it to...
I am tackling my challenge with God and although my body wants to run away, this is exactly what i desire and have been waiting for, although it is never how i pictured it or would've chosen it for myself.

Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 
1 Corinthians 15:58
