Finishing · Learning · Little by Little · teachable

learning… little by little…

On a day when ice and snow disrupt the regular rhythm of life… I’m struck with needing to come to grips with… little… by… little…

You see… at heart… I’m a one and done girl…

Let me do it once… do it till it’s finished… then MOVE on… to something else…

An extra unexpected day like today… free from the normal routine… makes me think I should be able to get something done… complete… finished…

But no… where I find myself now… is in the midst of many projects… requiring a little by little mentality…

It’s what God told the Israelites before they entered the Promised Land…

The Lord your God will clear away these nations before you little by little.

Deuteronomy 7:22 ESV

As they established their places in their new homeland… began taking possession of all they were given… they had to be deliberate… working little by little… as He led… as He cleared the way…

I find myself with several entities… requiring the same attitude of deliberate work… little by little each day… if I want to finish any… stay on task in all… not forget where I’m going in each…

From knitting to writing in several different places… I find the need to embrace the concept of little by little… because all are too big… to finish in one extra day…

Working on something a little each day… is not my default mode… but I guess it’s something I need to come to grips with…

Big projects take time… working some each day on many different things… can be challenging… maybe even discouraging… when I find great satisfaction in the finish…

I’m reminded… there is no finish… to our walk with Him… we are to be constantly stretched… always learning… always growing… into the character of our Infinite Savior… little… by… little…

The words in a current read remind…

“…Remember that your primary purpose is to learn, not teach. The primary teaching that you have for the coming ones is to teach them how to learn. This is what it means to be a disciple — you are a forever student. …”

–Rick Joyner, The Torch and the Sword

Students learn… little by little… continuously seeking something new about Him each day…

We are never done… and in the little by little I’m doing these days… I’m learning… to… be… teachable…

Do you struggle with little by little…? do you get distracted…? wander from the way which is long…? tire of investing small amounts at a time…? in something bigger than you…?

Come alongside… join me in the journey… of following Him… letting Him lead… little by little…

I could use the company…
