Staying the course….

20160619_222402

Three days… 64oz of juicing per day….equates to over 10lbs of fruits and veggies per half-gallon. And I don’t really see an end in sight. How long will I continue? As long as it takes..

“Staying the course” is applicable to everything in life, and how difficult we make it! I think about the lessons left for us to glean from, and how they leave us incredulous. Remember Moses and the Israelites as they were fleeing Egypt? God parted the Red Sea for them and then engulfed their enemies. He fed them daily Manna, and yet they didn’t trust Him to provide life-sustaining water. They whined and wanted to turn back to the slavery that had been their life. We shake our heads at the insanity of that notion, and yet…

How many times do we know what we need to do to make things better, and instead stay in the same rut, trudging along, doing the same things, and getting the same results?

How many times do we throw in the towel thinking this is too difficult, the enemy is too big, the odds are against us? (Remember the spy report and only 2 of the 12 were optimistic? It cost the Israelites 40 years of needless wandering and misery because they focused on the negative and not the positive.)

How would our results be different if we committed 100% to staying the course, no matter what, for as long as it takes? Would we get the results we seek? Absolutely! 100% of the time!! Staying the course is the secret to success that isn’t a secret. The Successful give the “secret” away for all who will listen, but only those that apply it reap the rewards.

Are you ready to commit to staying the course? I am! I commit to staying the course, as long as it takes, and as much as it takes, until the results chase me down. And the good news is, it is like eating an elephant….you need only take one bite at a time.

    DeeDee… As I dint believe there is anything that surprises God, and that he knows ” how long” and until when… I just want you to know that I am confident he is using your words, your example and your faith to prepare others( perhaps even me) for the journey!!
