Just keep going

People ask me how I handle my multiple roles.   Most of the time it's just about continuing to put one foot in front of the other and move forward.

There are days I definitely don't "get it all done"...even when I stay up 'til 3 am trying.

There are days I am exhausted...

days I stay in bed...

With every role in my life I feel like I'm flopping with at least one of them at any given time.  I have learned that is one of the greatest tactics of the enemy -- to flaunt whatever I'm struggling with to try to get me to wallow in feelings of inferiority so much so that I stop whatever I'm doing

Putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward is what sets any effective person apart from someone who isn't.  The commitment to stay in the race and not quit despite whatever we feel is one the most important attributes we can possess.  Pastor Tommy Barnett often says that if you feel like quitting that's a sign of success because you actually HAVE SOMETHING in life to quit!  (Unsuccessful people don't have anything TO quit!  They just exist.)  Life is not just about us existing, it's about us fulfilling our  purpose as determined by God.

I've got plenty to quit if I wanted to...but I made up my mind a long time ago not to.  As my friend Marsha says, I will "hang on like a hair on a grilled cheese sandwich!"
