"The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn't quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he turned that cream into butter and crawled out. Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse."
Frank Abagnale Sr. "Catch Me If You Can"
You've got to respect the 2nd mouse! We find our self in a mess and it is easy to give up - it takes a real hero to struggle away, to fight hard against the odds and end up on top.
You've got to respect the 2nd mouse. We want to be that mouse - whether at work or at home. Whether the problem is relationships, or career, or finance, we want to be THAT mouse. The one that works hard enough to rescue him/herself.
And I take my hat off to that kind of 'mouse'. The one who is determined and driven and courageous - in the right place, at the right time, facing the right obstacles - THAT is the mouse we need to be.
But sometimes, we cannot be that mouse. There is one obstacle we cannot fix, no matter how much we try to 'churn the milk'. It is our relationship with God. In fact the more we try and 'fix' ourselves, the more we try to 'rescue' ourselves the more of a mess we make.
When it comes to God, the only way we get out of that bucket, is when he reaches down and picks us out... That is why HE is the Hero.
