Celebrate Your Progress
1 Corinthians 15:58 (NLT) So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

In your long or short-term goals, consider how far you’ve come. Reflect on the moments of your successes in between then and now. If you are working your way out of bad habits or an addiction – even if you’ve deviated a time or two along the way – look at the progress you can claim because you haven’t given up! Do you ever take the time to celebrate your progress? You need to pause and praise the stages of growth, strength, and wisdom you gain as you move forward to the better and the best that awaits you. When you get in a hurry to move right on to the next thing and the next thing, you abort an important juncture. That juncture is the time you take to celebrate you because, after all – celebrating your progress includes celebrating your Helper – the One Who supports you all the way!
