But, I think that may be the point of it.
There are lots of highs and lots of lows, but in between those highs and lows is a lot of even middle ground that is the same ole, same ole. You spend time doing the same thing every day. I don't think it's the highs that throw us off course, because we revel in the excitement of it all. And I don't think it's the lows- those are the times we hold tightly to what we know and press on. It's all the in between times when we get bored with doing the same thing day after day. But could I be bold enough to suggest that sometimes it takes more motivation and perseverance to make it through the middle ground than even the low times?
I've lost 10 lbs in the last 2 weeks. 10.4 actually. I'm sure a lot of it had to do with having a minor touch of the stomach flu. I've been trying to take each day as it's own, doing what I need to do that day, and moving onto the next. So far, it's working. I'm reminding myself each day of this verse...
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.- Galatians 6:9
If you're plodding through the middle ground- press on. You might be bored, you might be getting a little tired, but keep going. Tomorrow might be the same as today, as well as the day after and the day after that. But each day matters. Each day gets you closer to your goal or to your reward (even if we don't see that reward this side of Heaven). Don't give up on what you are walking towards today!
