Distance to the Top

I was praying and feeling how far I am from where I ought to be. And it occurred to me that maybe sometimes when the Bible talks about patience, it is referring to the patience it takes to walk up the mountain to the goal. I can't reach the top in one big step - but that doesn't give me an excuse to not even try. I must realize that one trusting baby step is more progress than many a hopeless gaze at the pinnacle. God will bring me there in time.**********************************************************************************************************photo courtesy of kathya1204 at

Hi Becky -

One of my Bible School teachers had a favorite saying:

"By the inch, it's a cinch. By the yard it's hard."

Change comes gradually. :)
