Doing things well can feel unreachable at times. Take marriage, for instance -- you can have the goal of being an excellent wife but get overwhelmed when you read things like Proverbs 31. So you think, "This is impossible. I'll never attain this."
I want to be a great wife.
A great Mom.
A great pastor.
A great leader.
A great writer.
A great speaker.
A great coach.
Most of all I want to be a great friend of God.
Doing any of those things with excellence does seem a daunting prospect. Maybe you feel the same about whatever it is you're setting out to do.
How about finding one way every day to make a difference?
In my marriage, I can't do it all in a day but it is workable for me to find a way to show my husband love and care in at least one way every day. The way differs depending on the day and season but I can manage one way each day.
How about you? Does one way every day seem workable?
I'm getting kind of giddy thinking about the one way I'm going to show him today...
