So don’t be discouraged. Dust yourself off, and get up, and keep trying. You may not see it, but you are improving. You may not be improving as quickly and steadily as you desire. But what He desires (and the world hopes for) is that you keep trying. Each day. Keep moving forward.
Have you seen the movie Facing the Giants? Oh gosh, if you haven’t, it is worth tracking down. It is a little independent movie—and it has an amazing scene in it about the determination it takes to keep moving forward. It is so good. It is downright amazing. If you have seen it, you will know what I mean—it is a scene during the coach’s practice. Keep moving forward is the message…. Don’t give up today. Keep moving. tomorrow, I promise you, you will be very glad that you did. Just a few more yards until today’s finish line.
