Keeping on in the middle of hard things: I want to see this through, but I feel overwhelmed. How do I keep up my enthusiasm? ; What if I try to do something hard and it doesn't work out? Does that mean I didn't hear God right? ; I'm doing hard things, but nothing feels different. What should I do? --

like TV, music, movies, books, and the Internet? --
When doing is done: Is it all right to feel proud after doing a hard thing? ; How do I keep from falling back into my old ways of thinking and acting? ; What do I do when I'm done with a hard thing? Is it okay to take a break? --
Two stories that will answer all your questions (or at least give you some great ideas).
