win your spurs

"Why postpone your good resolution? Up with you, and set about it this instant; tell yourself, 'Now is the time for action; this is zero-hour, just the right moment for making something better of my life.' But you are feeling low, and finding things difficult? Why, that is the very opportunity you want, to win your spurs!"

[Thomas a Kempis, The Imitation of Christ]

isn't that always the challenge? not, "I'm doing the best I can, I need a day to get ready for 'the change', so I'll journal and make a plan and start tomorrow, or Monday, cuz I've already blown it today anyway...just one last time, one last day, then..."

I know the word says his mercies are new every morning, that is true. But it is also true that his mercies are new every INSTANT.

thanks for sharing Meredith! I always think about your provocative quotes, and sometimes I tell you my reaction. :)
