Push for life! : Push for life! Slide 2: A man was sleeping at night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled with light, and the Wise one appeared. He told the man he had work for him to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. Slide 3: He explained that the man was to push against the rock with all his might. So, this the man did, day after day. Slide 4: For many years he toiled from sun up to sun down, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive surface of the unmoving rock, pushing with all of his might. Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, feeling that his whole day had been spent in vain. Slide 5: Since the man was showing discouragement, the Adversary decided to enter the picture by placing thoughts into the weary mind: "You have been pushing against that rock for a long time, and it hasn't moved." Slide 6: Thus, he gave the man the impression that the task was impossible and that he was a failure. These thoughts discouraged and disheartened the man. Slide 7: Adversary said, "Why kill yourself over this? Just put in your time, giving just the minimum effort; and that will be good enough." Slide 8: That's what the weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a matter of prayer . Slide 9: “I have laboured long and hard in your service, putting all my strength to do that which you have asked. Yet, after all this time, I have not even budged that rock by half a millimetre. What is wrong? Why am I failing?” Slide 10: The Wise one responded compassionately, "My friend, when I asked you to serve Me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against the rock with all of your strength, which you have done.” Slide 11: “Never once did I mention to you that I expected you to move it. Your task was to push. And now you come to Me with your strength spent, thinking that you have failed. But, is that really so?” Slide 12: Through opposition you have grown much, and your abilities now surpass that which you used to have .” “Look at yourself. Your arms are strong and muscled, your back sinewy and brown; your hands are callused from constant pressure, your legs have become massive and hard. Slide 13: Now I, my friend, will move the rock.” “True, you haven't moved the rock. But your calling was to be obedient and to push and to exercise your faith and trust in My Wisdom. That you have done. Slide 14: At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own intellect to decipher what He wants, when usually what God wants is just simple obedience and faith in Him. Slide 15: By all means, exercise the faith that moves mountains, but know that it is still The Wise One who moves mountains. Slide 16: When everything seems to go wrong ... just P.U.S.H.! Slide 17: When the job gets you down ... just P.U.S.H.! Slide 18: When people don't react the way you think they should ... just P.U.S.H! Slide 19: When your money is "gone" and the bills are due ... just P.U.S.H! Slide 20: When people just don't understand you .... just P.U.S.H. Slide 21: P = Pray/Persist U = Until S = Something H = Happens Slide 22: Remind your loved ones and friends that need to hear this. Truly, great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget!
