The ENGINE, not the caboose! :)
Thursday, November 14, 2013
When I see myself as the little train that could, I have to remember that the character in that story was an ENGINE, not a rail car in the middle, and not the caboose!
I have to remember that to climb those hills in my life, and to keep going in the right direction no matter how I feel in the moment, I'M the one who has the power. Because of that, the results are not only my responsibility, but within my control. God provides the fuel, but it's me who needs to keep pushing. If I give over that control to anyone or anything else, then it doesn't matter how much "I think I can," because then I've become the caboose. No power. No control.
SOOOOO, after a day of being the caboose yesterday, I'm resolved to remember I'm the engine! Thanks to one of my Friends here who gave me the little train image ... I think I can, I think I can.
