In Others’ Words: Inches
“Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more.” ~Louis L’Amour (1908-1988), “America’s Storyteller”
So … maybe you’re not making as much progress as you think you should.
Are you measuring victory — your success — in miles or inches?
True story: There was a season in my life best described as “barren.” God directed me on a journey to emotional freedom that led straight through the desert.
There were days I caught glimpses of healing … and days I felt abandoned.
One lesson I learned during that time? You can hold your ground laying down.
I stopped pretending I had it (my life) all together. I laid down — emotionally, spiritually, physically. But I didn’t lose ground. I clung to the Truth and didn’t let the desert season dry up my faith. I may not have “bloomed where I was planted,” but I held my ground.
And that was enough.
Inches. Not miles.
In Your Words: What victory are you winning these days? Are you progressing by miles or inches?
