When we look down sometimes it is because we can not see what is in front of us. We try to push thru on our own strength and understanding but there are avenues that have road blocks. We know for a fact that on the other side there will be a breakthrough, a light that says, "You have reached your goal, you see. You are now free to go on any which road that may lead you to what has been promised to you long ago."
So stand up now, hold your head up high, and be patient. You can weather this storm as well. "Go!", I say, "see was this really worth it." Trust me your answer will always be a "Yes!"
