I had to run on the dreaded treadmill today at the gym. Only wanting to endure the machine for half an hour I started in, however the closer I was getting to the 30 minute mark I found myself increasing the speed. Like it would really make those minutes go any faster. I had to laugh once I realize what I was doing, it doesn’t matter how fast I am going. Thirty minutes is thirty minutes.
I instantly thought of the many times that I wanted to be farther down the road to that place where I would be walking out in my hearts desires (dreams and aspirations). There have been often times that I would be hard on myself, pushing to make things happen before I am ready. All those wonderful goals that I see in my heart and so badly want to achieve, I mentally turn up the speed on the treadmill (so to speak) as if it will get me there faster. But it’s a process, not a destination to become what God has designed me to be. It is a journey that my Heavenly Father is enjoying. And you what to know something… I am finally at a place of enjoying the journey now too. At least for today ‘wink’.
Philippians 1:6 AMP
I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in me will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].
