How often do we just keep huffing and puffing, trying to make things happen? Probably more often than any of us wants to admit. It's easy to get caught up in one way of doing things, especially as we get more and more frustrated.
But, as Einstein said, insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Sometimes it is worth taking time to consider the way we are approaching a problem—or for that matter, to pray about it. A little patience, and the humility to look at other ways of doing things, can go a long way towards shedding some light on the situation.
