I can remember times in my life where I was worried about how things looked at that very moment. Sometimes you can’t see past your here and now, and it becomes difficult to encourage yourself for the road ahead. Our situations sometimes have us blinded and we can’t see what’s ahead of us. It’s hard to imagine running the company when your just trying to get hired. It’s hard to see walking across the stage getting your degree when your just praying to make it through that difficult class.
One thing we can rest assured about is that, it’s never about how you start, but how you finish.
I use to teach sixth grade, and that is such a difficult age for many adolescents. They are not quite babies anymore and not the teenagers they hope to become. They are in that middle stage. It can be tough being in the middle. Your too far to go back, yet not far enough to be where you want to be. Just in the middle. Often students would come in on the first week of school so unsure of themselves and often worried about just making it through that one year! I use to tell them all the time, you’ll be amazed at the person you’ll become by the end of the school year! I would let them know that My concern is not really in how much they know when they enter my class, but I am most concerned with who they become when they walk out my door at the end of the year! I believe that is how God is with us. It doesn’t matter where we start with Him, but he’s concerned with where we are when He returns! He desires for us to finish strong!
Everyday is a new opportunity to get things right.
Everyday is a chance to let your light shine and to go after the assignment that He has placed on your life! It doesn’t matter if it’s just one thing a day, one step, it places you closer than you were the day before! So keep moving and doing what God has called you to do! Keep going and don’t worry about how you start, just finish strong!!!
