Which Direction are You Making Effort

"The Christian life is very much like climbing a hill of ice. You cannot slide up. You have to cut every step with an ice axe. Only with incessant labor in cutting and chipping can you make any progress. If you want to know how to backslide, leave off going forward. Cease going upward and you will go downward of necessity. You can never stand still." - CH Spurgeon

The hardest battle you will ever fight in this Christian walk will be about what you allow to grow in your own heart. Pulling weeds is hard, gritty work but it makes for a lovelier garden.
