Effort refers to the work put into something. If you do not put forth your best effort then you are more likely to fail in achieving your goals, but if you give something all of your efforts then you have accomplished much even if the end goal is not met. The effort required to move a 5 lb block is far less than the effort needed to move a 500 lb block.
Sometimes you may say,:"I pray to God but I still did not get what I want." And I will tell you there is 2 reasons why, God is testing you and wants to know if you will give up easily, or are you going to keep praying until He answers your prayers and gives you what your heart desires. The other reason may be what you want or who you want is not the right thing for you, you may not know it right now, but one day you will understand that what you asked for is not what you need to be happy, in peace and live in an unconditional love for yourself, God and others. So trust in your Lord that no matter what you ask for God will give you what you need not necessarily what you want. Have faith, keep praying and open your eyes to the signs that He is given you to direct you to the right direction; the one of your dreams.
When you do everyday what you are supposed to do, and you walk on the right path, guided by God than no matter what happens in your life, and no matter how many challenges that you will face, have hope that at the end of your journey you will succeed. The good thing also is that while you are walking on that path you know that God's hand is with you, so do not fear and keep walking; keep having faith and believe that you will get to your dreams.
We all have those moments where you just want to go under the cover and forget about everything that is happening in your life. Those cold moments that you are experiencing is to remind you that you need to get warm again, so reach out to God and He will make everything better. I promise you. Just lean on Him, that 's all what God wants from you, it's to count on Him, to have faith that He will make everything better for you, and to believe that He will do it in His own timing. Meanwhile, feel His love and read his words so you can know what He wants from you. And the more you get to know your Creator, the more you will understand why He allowed cold moments in your life to happen. By feeling His love, nothing else will matter in your life, you will surrender and know that there are better days coming into your way.
We look everywhere and work sometimes harder then we should, because we are digging in the wrong places to find happiness, love and peace; to find that treasure that we think will be full of gold and money, and success..But you are looking at the wrong place to be satisfied. The key to success, to money abundantly in your life, to your treasure, to happiness, joy, and love in your life, is in your heart. The key to your success it's when you start connecting with your Creator, and you start loving Him with all your heart, soul, mind and body. When you start doing so, God will lead you to your treasure, He will lead you to the people that will love you unconditionally, to the business that you need to adventure in. And you are going to ask me God doesn't care about how much money I can make or I want to make. And I will answer you; you are wrong. Because the more money you make under His love and authority, the more you will give back to the needy and the ones that need a helping hand from you. And if this is not your intention when you have abundance and wealth then you will never be happy, and money will never satisfy your hunger not matter how much you have. And it will become a curse more than a blessing. So start a great foundation with God, and He will give you what your heart desires.
The essence of our effort to see that every child has a chance must be to assure each an equal opportunity, not to become equal, but to become different - to realize whatever unique potential of body, mind and spirit he or she possesses
