Larry Lilly's Letter Tuesday February 16, 2010

Sue Smith a former teacher and long time friend from Avon sent a cute note the other day and it is right in line with my thoughts for today, thoughts designed to help you stay at it. Here is Sue's key to success:

"Women are Angels And when someone breaks our wings.... We simply continue to fly.........on a broomstick... We are flexible like that."

Hey, a girl sent it to me.

Brian Tracy noted motivational speaker puts it like this:

"Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else."

God Himself weighs in on this subject with Paulís statement in 1 Corinthians 15:58:

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

This verse is an old standby for the premise that persistence pays off. Tracy's statement deals with only half of the premise, namely staying at it. Paul strangely enough lends credence to Sue's line. In Ms. Smith's statement women are flying and in order to keep flying they must persist. But they must do something equally as important: They must adjust, from flying on wings to a broomstick. Now I know some of you don't believe women can fly on a broomstick. You don't know some women I know.

Many folks are unaware that Paul uses a navigational term in his verse. To remain stedfast means to maintain course through correction of heading to compensate for wind and current. If you fail to correct you may still be flying or sailing, but you are not going to get where you want to go. Set a predetermined course to your destination and make small corrections enroute, then persistence will pay off.

We abound in the work of the Lord, which we know is not in vain, but the object is not mere movement, but progress toward the prize. If the wing breaks, use a broomstick.
