“How, dear sir, did you cross the flood?”
“By not halting friend, and by not straining I crossed the flood.”
“But how is it, dear sir, that by not halting and by not straining you crossed the flood?”
“When I came to a standstill, friend, then I sank; but when I struggled, then I got swept away. It is in this way, friend, that by not halting and by not straining I crossed the flood.”
I ran across this quote tonight and realized it’s perfect for my life right now. I need to just keep at things – steady – and get them accomplished. No struggling, no stopping, just keeping pace. It much easier said than done, but it’s what I need to do.
