Do you ever feel like you aren’t getting anywhere? Maybe you really are not. Maybe you find yourself day after day, week after week, even year after year in the same place. Maybe you truly aren’t making any progress toward the life that you want or maybe you don’t even know what you want but you know that you want something different. Sometimes you need someone else to help you to realize that the life that you are living is just not working for you. Maybe there are obstacles in your way that you don’t even know how to begin to move or get around.
Maybe you are progressing in your life but the steps seem so small that you don’t recognize your growth or your forward momentum. Each day that you get up, face the world and observe even small changes in the right and positive direction, you are making progress. “Rome wasn’t built in a day” is the quote that comes to mind. “Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…” Zechariah 4:10 NLT Wow, think about that, even God rejoices at your small steps of progress. Today, stop and think about where you are and where you want to be. Are you giving yourself credit for your progress or do you find yourself “stuck”? You have the power to change your life! Let that sink in. You may need someone’s help to get there and you will definitely need God’s help, but you can begin to make progress today. Life is short, go for it!
