Press On

Don't be discouraged if you are not able to attain to that which you desire to be in a day. Press on.

Don't be depressed if you feel how little you are able to help those who are sad and lonely and down, and that your shining for the Saviour in this dark world is very dimly done. Just keep on.

I was greatly heartened the other day by a simple nursery rhyme. It was —

"One foot up and one foot down,
  That's the way to London Town."

Is there not a world of wisdom in that simple rhyme? There is, surely. It is by a step at a time that we attain our goal.

"Let no one think that sudden in a minute
  All is accomplished and the work is done."

Yes, but if we keep at it steadily and persistently,

"Filling the unforgiving minute
  With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,"

we shall fill full our day, and fulfil our Lord's purpose for our life below, and our labour will not be in vain in the Lord.
