I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday. (Quoted by Dan O’Deens, cross-cultural worker)
We sometimes want to give up because we haven’t seemed to make much progress. We’re so short of our goal that we think we might just as well give up and try something else. But as O’Deens has discovered, if we’re making even a little step forward, we are nearing the goal bit by bit. So, keep your eye on the target and keep moving forward.
I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race (Philippians 3:13-14).
