Each day is a day of progress, steady progress forward, if you make it so. You may not see it, but God does. God does not judge by outward appearance. He judges by the heart. Let Him see in your heart a simple desire always to do His will. Though you may feel that your work has been spoiled or tarnished, God sees it as an offering for Him. When climbing a steep hill, a person is often more conscious of the weakness of his stumbling feet than of the view, the grandeur, or even of the upward progress.
Had a decent day at work. Been spending some good quality time with someone very special lately.
My bro and I used to climb Stone Mt. in Georgia almost every day. It was so steep in the last stretch that all I could do was watch the next step in front of me, gasp for air, and wonder if I was going to make it to the top. Once up, it was an effort to even breathe. After sitting for a couple of minutes, I looked around and enjoyed the view. This really was worth the work.
When treading a challenging path, I like to be mindful of the next step in front of me. I also like to enjoy the process of getting to the top of that mountain.
