Picture an ant working tirelessly to move a grain of dirt in front of her so she can move forward. Her vision is blocked from what lies a foot in front of her. Her load is minuscule compared to the mound of earth piled around a tree stump just a few feet in front of her. And she cannot even fathom the fact that there lies a forest 50 feet ahead of her. She sees and focuses only that which is in front of her. Yet, overcoming her individual challenge is crucial to enabling her to reach that forest along with the other ants.
We may not see the ‘big picture’. Yet, we can be rest assured that there is something bigger and greater out there. We must focus on our individual challenges and victories, trusting that by completing our unique soul’s program we are moving towards our final destination. Let’s trust the Divine process. Let’s patiently complete our own mission, overcoming our personal challenges in order to help usher the redemption as it unfolds before our very own eyes B’H.

Place a coin in front of your eye and notice how much your vision is blocked in comparison to the size of the coin. So much of life is hidden from us – we truly only see a piece of the puzzle.
