Joy in the victories!

I went for a bike ride tonight. The sun was going down and the temperature had dipped a bit. It felt great to be outside and riding. Then I saw IT! The hill that seemed to go on forever. I knew that it was going to take work and persistence to get to the top. I began to peddle harder to get the momentum that I needed and then I realized that I would not make it at the intensity level that I was tackling it at. I changed gears and it was better. That lasted for a little while and then I needed to gear down again and again until I was able to keep moving without hyperventilating. Just in the nick of time I saw a driveway of a business that had a long flat entrance. It was my oasis in the midst of the never ending mountain! I peddled into this driveway and got my second wind! As I reentered the mountainous road I was more determined than ever to make it to the top. I had speed and oxygen on my side and eventually I made it to the top.

Now I know that you are laughing at me and that's okay because I am proud that I did not give up! I am proud that I did not fall over! When I got to the top I screamed, "Yes, I did it!" I was glad that No one heard me! I enjoyed the victory all the way down the hill.

Little victories are crucial to making big ones.

That is why I think that Scripture tells us to be faithful in little things.

His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!' Matthew 25:21

Little by little, victory by victory we become more and more into the image of Jesus!

And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18

What little victory can you be thankful for today?

How is God transforming you?

Where do you need a second wind?


Thank you for using the ride today to remind me of the little victories. It is only through your power and strength that we can have victory over sin. I give you all the Glory and Honor that is due your name. May I be transformed into ReFlecting you more and more through these little victories.
