a snail's pace

On my walk the other morning I spotted this snail and something prompted me to watch it for a few minutes. Expecting it to move slowly...'at a snail's pace'...I was pleasantly surprised to see how far it traveled in just a few minutes.

I couldn't help but think of my own journey. I often times feel like I'm moving at a 'snail's pace' and get frustrated, discouraged. But when I really stop to think of where I was a year ago i realize that I've been coming along nicely. Maybe not at the speed my pride would like, but at the speed our Father would like. When you walk with Christ, you have the time to move like that because you know He has you right where He wants you to be.
