But then comes the Hill and I know that I am made for more. And by becoming more, I am challenged to choose suffering, to endure pain, to bear hardship.
At first the gentle swell carries me…But gradually the Hill demands more and more. I have reached the end of what is possible. Now it is beyond what I can stand. The temptation is to say. “Enough! This much is enough.” But I will not give in
I am fighting God. Fighting the limitations he gave me. Fighting the pain. Fighting the unfairness. Fighting all the evil in me and the world. And I will not give in. I will conquer this Hill; and I will conquer it alone.
