Today in class, the teacher gave us seven steps to do in order to finish a project we were working on. There was frustration throughout the class evidenced by the heavy sighs. No one could understand how we were getting to the finished product. After a while, each of us continued on our journey and what happened was amazing.
After each step was completed, the next step became clear and on and on until the next to the last step where we stopped today and will finish next week. We were all focused on the last step and where we currently were on the first step. It just hadn’t made sense.
James 1:4 states “Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” This was the verse I used today and helped me to see that each and every step were important for me to achieve the end product.
