Sometimes, in the heart of the wilderness, your step that was a strong march slows down. Then turns into a limp after rolling an ankle, and finally ends up looking more like a crawl by the end of the day.
And that’s fine. Because the only rule is we don’t stop.
When there’s a choice between struggling and stopping, we always want to err on the side of going for it.
That means that at the beginning of each day, the ones who “win”, spiritually, aren’t necessarily the most gifted, the most talented, the capable. It’s not the ones who look most promising on paper.
The most faithful are the ones who persevere. So just keep going. Be faithful.
