Her determination fascinates me. She sees what she is going for and goes for it. However when she realizes how far the prize was, and how long she still had to crawl, she would get discouraged and stop moving. She could have covered so much more ground had she kept her focus on the snickers bar and just kept moving until she got there.
How much more in your life? How often do you lose sight of Jesus? Do you get caught up in all there is to do, or how much work it is? Oh, I have so much more to learn! Oh, I have worked so hard and am still not as good as ____! What's the point? This walk is too hard! This crawl is too long! Look at all that I have been through Lord! Look at all I have given up for You!
Don't lose hope! Here is what the Bible says:
Philippians 3:14I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.Acts 20:24But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.1 Timothy 6:12Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
