Sometimes in our lives, we are put to task to build something without a clear blueprint. Yet, our diligence still makes us roll up our sleeves and dig in. As we roll one stone in front of the other, we create the outline of the structure.
Though the end product is invisible, we lean on the All-knowing Substance to guide us as we work on. The hustle and bustle of the movement of busy hands and feet may look chaotic to some, but there is usually a method to the madness. Amelia Earhart said, “Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn’t be done.” It is better to be a curious yet silent observer when there is a work in progress.
Active participants on the construction project should be wise and dutiful soldiers that follow the commands of those running the show. Whether the roles are major or minor, all are essential to the whole.
Tempers may flare, angry words may be exchanged and bricks may fall in the heat of the battle but the intent to succeed is solid like a rock. The smoke from the chiseling hammers may cause a temporary fog and sweat may pour from the brow.
But the light at the end of the tunnel will come into visibility. And as Shaun Alexander says, “I think there will be more smiles when the smoke clears!”
