Little by little, inch by inch, by the yard it’s hard… by the inch it’s a cinch. Never stare at the stair; just step up the steps little by little, inch by inch.
This little song has been echoing in my brain all morning. (It is indeed amazing the things you retain from childhood.) Yet I am having one of those days where I am feeling overwhelmed with life in general. I have found myself on several occasions over the last few days “staring” at the computer unable to put a coherent thought together. Maybe we could blame it on “spring fever”, or maybe I’m just tired. Our family has been very busy this last month with school ending, church activities (Vacation Bible School is next week.), and a short vacation to Atlanta/Warm Springs over Memorial Day Weekend. My husband, Gordon, at “Heavenly Heartburn” has shared in a little more detail our running around.
Little by little, like the inchworm, I have stretched as far as I can go. I need to be replenished and put back together by the one who knows me completely. Psalm 61:2 has been on my heart all day. It reads, ” From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” That is what I need in this moment. I need to lean upon the one who has the strength, stability, fortitude, shelter and comfort to lift me. I must run to His Word and rest in it. So many times I want add to the amount of things I am doing when I really need to just rest and wait for the right timing. So in my own Christian life I am still learning to take it little by little. Little work, little rest, little love, little caring can go a long way. I should not let discouragment over not being able to do everything cloud my focus to what I can do. Little by little I will accomplish what God has for me to do.
Little by little…Great words for the day, and now I hear the Good Book and a nap calling my name. 🙂
