In the words of T.D. Jakes: Many times we get so wrapped up in achieving our life’s goal that we miss the opportunity to stop and be thankful for the things we have already achieved. When working diligently to complete a race we often stay focused on the finish line. While determination is critical in achieving anything, I challenge you to slow down the pace every now and then, look back at the ground you have covered and applaud yourself for making it thus far. Give God the praise even when the goal seems only a distant blur.
Always work diligently to complete your goals but don’t forget to slow down thank God for your accomplishments and then get back on track of what God has in store for you!!!
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.
