It’s not about deciding today that we’re going to do it all, be it all, change it all, or achieve it all. It’s about making tiny, consistent, positive changes that eventually add up to a big result. Whether your goal is to spend more time in scripture, find time to workout each day, lose weight, break free from some things that have been holding you back, or exchanging a bad habit for a good one, start with one step.
Then do it again tomorrow.
And once you’ve gotten the hang of your first step, add a new step. If you’ve decided to start by spending 5 minutes in scripture each day, add another 5 minutes. If you’ve decided to start working out, get up and walk for 10 minutes, then add another 10 minutes. On the days when you stumble over your steps, take a deep breath and start again. One at a time, with consistency, until you reach your goal.
You’ve got this.

This really encourages me today. I’ve been sick with some cold/flu thing for over a week now and haven’t been able to get out and take any walks. It’s bumming me out. Your words today reminded me that this won’t last forever, that I will be able to get back to my routine and that I do indeed have this. Thanks, Crystal!
