The Law of One More

I heard something today that made a lot of sense to me…
A guy did an interview and said his Father got sober and he asked him if he was gonna stay sober forever…
the father said I don’t know but I can promise I’ll be sober for one more day…

Later in life the guy was struggling to stay consistent in his weight lifting for a competition…
His dad said are you going to quit he said I’m thinking about it…
his dad said how about you stick with it just one more day…

He said the power of “one more” kept him going to championship level…
and kept his dad sober 50 years…

So I thought about it a while and I thought this is what has kept me going at times the world around me was crashing down and I thought I couldn’t go on…
There were moments I faced things that were bigger than me and times I thought I would suffocate under the pressure the world was putting on me…
And I would go to sleep crying thinking this is it…
I would still wake up the next morning wash my face so my hair and put on a smile and go about my day… one more day…
You continue this until finally the Lord releases you from the depths of hell you have been living in…
and I made it through with that one more day mentality…

We will all have our pitfalls n our valleys…
why do you think the prayer includes yay though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…
It also says I will fear no evil for God is my shepherd…
basically he is with us even in the depths n when we aren’t strong enough he’ll carry us…
we just need to hang on… one more day…
