This is the second full week of the new year. If you have made a resolution and find yourself already showing signs of slowing the momentum down, Don’t give up. Great things take time. And all things worthwhile are not easily attained. This is just a little bump on the road. You can do this.
Many people give up too soon and then find themselves wishing they had just stuck it out a little longer. This may seem, to many, like a short time and wonder who would actually give up so early? There are many because from the beginning of their journey all they’ve had have been obstacles.
In Galatians 6:9 (NLT) it says, “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Many of us get tired of continually doing what is right, keeping our word, staying focussed, staying on a program, etc. But don’t give up and don’t give in. Your reward is soon to come.
So keep working at your pace but keep working. Stay focussed and make short strides or accomplishments and reward yourself for getting there. Soon the ultimate prize will come your way.
