Never let the thorns keep you off the garden. Target the roses and trust God to handle the thorns for you.
Be open minded because He alone chooses the mode of operation.
He could choose to help you navigate untouched through the thorns.
He could choose to pull them off and give you free access to the roses.
He could choose to leave them there and give you the grace to live happily with them (I’ve not met anyone yet who asked for this third option; it’s rather unpopular).
God created the roses; He knows they have thorns on them. Don’t get stuck at that.
Don’t let the thorns keep you off your dream.
