There are times where I use my GPS to get to a destination. Amidst the challenges of stop lights, and traffic, sometimes a journey that would take ten minutes quickly turns into twenty minutes. Just a few weeks ago, I found myself relying on my GPS for what seemed to be a fifteen minute journey. Along the way there were many stop lights. So much so, until I grew accustomed to having to stop frequently, uggghhhh.
While at one of those stop lights, traffic was flowing heavily, I figured “this may take a while.” So I became occupied while waiting. Fidgeting with the radio station, checking email and reviewing my errands for the day. While occupied, my GPS says “Continue.” I looked up, the light had changed to green. It’s interesting how we can become so comfortable with delays that when there is change, its not always recognizable. I quickly dropped what was in my hand and “Continued……”
To continue means to persevere, endure, keep going, never stopping. How much time has been wasted giving attention to the opinions of others, who really do not matter? Or being distracted because of what someone said? You have an opportunity to be extraordinary. Why waste it, settling for the mediocrity of stagnation. Having more traffic ahead, stop lights etc. I still made the decision to continue………
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
