Going the Distance


Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did. - Newt Gingrich

I've been working really hard to overcome some struggles in my life. There are some days when I think I'm only a few steps away from my finish line only to discover that the line's suddenly been redrawn!

Thankfully, evidence of progress litters the trail behind me.

As I paused this morning, God gently reminded me that my life is not a marathon nor is it a competition. I received the distinct impression that it was time for me to take a breather... time to reflect on how His hand has guided me and to wait for His prompting to continue on towards the finish line.
