I received this in my Email last night.  I do not know who wrote it but thought I would share this Beautiful message with all my Beautiful Friends.    My new Motto is "PUSH." so when you see it on the notes and messages I send to you, you will now know why.  Enjoy and God Bless Brenda

PUSH

A man was sleeping one night in his cabin when suddenly his room
Filled with light, and God appeared. The Lord told the man he had work
For him to do, and showed him a large rock out in front of his cabin.
The Lord explained that the man was to push against the rock with all
His might...

So, this the man did, day after day. For many years he toiled from
Sunup to sundown, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive
Surface of the unmoving rock, pushing with all his might!

Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, feeling
That his whole day had been spent in vain. Since the man was showing
Discouragement, the Adversary (Satan) decided to enter the picture by
Placing thoughts into his weary mind. (He will do it every time)!

You have been pushing against that rock for a long time and it hasn't
Moved." 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.

Satan said, "Why kill yourself over this? You tried. Quit wasting your
Time and move on. "

That's what the weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a
Matter of prayer and to take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.

"Lord," he said, "I have labored 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 millimeter.
What is wrong? Why am I failing?"

The Lord responded compassionately, "My child, 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.
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? Look at yourself. Your arms are strong and
Muscled, your back shiny and brown; your hands are callused from
Constant pressure, your legs have become massive and hard.

Through opposition you have grown much, and your abilities now surpass
That which you used to have. True, you haven't moved the rock. But
Your calling was to be obedient, to push and to exercise your faith
And trust in My wisdom. That you have done. Now I, my child, will move
The rock."

At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own
Intellect to decipher what He wants, when actually what God wants is
Just simple obedience and faith in Him.

By all means, exercise the faith that moves mountains, but know that
It is still God Who moves the mountains.

When everything seems to go wrong..........................Just P.U.S.H.

When the job gets you down...........................Just P.U.S.H.

When people don't do as you think they should...............Just P.U.S.H.

When your money is "gone" and the bills are due...............Just P.U.S.H.

When people just don't understand you..........................Just P.U.S.H.

P = Pray
U = Until
S = Something
H = Happens

"Though no one can go back and make a brand
New start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending."

Friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have
Trouble remembering how to fly.

May you be blessed with God's tender mercy.

Push2Rewind,  You are quite Welcome Hun.  I'm so sorry to hear you are having such a hard time right now.  You are in my Prayers.  Sometimes when our lives seem to be in total turmoil, or we feel there is no relief in site and all hope is lost, we often spend our days going in circles, worrying about what can be done to remedy the situation. When actually we need to just Stop,  Kneel Down, Look Up, and allow God to carry us through our problems.  I Hope You Have A Wonderful Day, and God Bless Brenda.
