Nothing quite compares to the beauty of a rose. However, a rose would not be quite as beautiful if we did not have to risk some thorns. In fact, the bigger the rose, the bigger and harder the thorns. And so it goes with life . . . no great victory has ever been won without a struggle. Don’t let a good life get in the way of a great one by giving up too soon or giving in in the midst of a trial. Press in. Persevere. Be an overcomer. The greater the adversity, the greater the victory!
