Conquering new heights is like wearing new shoes. We get so excited to try it on. We feel pretty and walk so gorgeously on our first few steps… but after few more steps… and another step, we can feel the pain on our feet… blisters are forming. And for us to just go through the day, we put plasters on them… Yet still, the agony of bearing the pain and letting the day pass is kicking-in. But at the end of the day, we may find our feet with plasters and blisters, there’s still undeniable satisfaction of having a new blessing… and we know, after some more tries walking with it, we’ll get used to it… and soon enough, we will realize, how pretty we are on our new shoes… and that it perfectly fit with our size.
On the same manner, we get so excited with the idea of starting our career to a new place or new heights or taking new assignment. Hence, our hearts are so filled with joy as we start the journey… We’re so pumped up with passion and determination! But as the days… and some more days pass by, the agony of waiting is just ‘killing’ us…
So I must say, “adjustment period” is inevitable and resistance is almost always part of the process but as long as we begin to see our future in HIS eyes and appreciate each blessing that was given to us, every step, big or small, is indeed not a waste… and sooner or later, it will be paid-off.
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things [are] noble, whatever things [are] just, whatever things [are] pure, whatever things [are] lovely, whatever things [are] of good report, if [there is] any virtue and if [there is] anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things.”
