The Stairs Make the Staircase

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

It’s so easy to get lost in the routine of everyday life. Your world becomes a never ending to-do list of things that hardly ever get done. Almost like a sequence of repetitive motion you know that your tomorrow will be nothing but a slight variation of your today. Something that at times is welcomed, even most of the time enjoyed, can bear weights stronger then the strongest can hold.

How much is getting things done worth, if you can’t even enjoy the moments of getting to the top? I’ve always imagined the view at the end of a goal would be the most rewarding of sights and most likely the greatest of feelings. However, how much more would it mean to enjoy the view on the way up?

For the driven, things add up quickly, maybe even more so for the less motivated. We get stressed out, exhausted, and at some points let down. Our time is consumed faster than the next day can begin. We try to stretch something that can’t be multiplied and create something that can’t be made. I have come to believe that the greatest successes stand little in comparison to the moments of enjoyment that get us there. While the small things often times seem to slip between the cracks, they are the very things that make the view from the top all the more worthwhile.

  1. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog : ) So good to see your smiling face & spending time with you this weekend! Love you!

  2. Rachel, this is brilliant! Your words of wisdom remind me of what Jesus said this very thing. Matt:6:34 therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

  3. I can definitely relate to you with this one. Its a profound truth that some people don’t realize until its too late and they’ve wasted their life away on trying to be “successdul”. Micah told me something that changed my life. He said “I try not to worry about WHAT I’m becoming but rather WHO I’m becoming. If the WHO is in place, the WHAT will always follow.” I think that fits right in with what you’re saying in this blog.

  4. I know the major difference between the “extraordinary people” and the “ordinary people” is that difference called “extra”. The moment we believed and take note of the minute things that come our way and appreciate the Lord for them, the more this small or minute pieces begin to take a bigger and mighty shape that will have tremendous change in our life and people around us. Surely it’s the stairs that make the staircase……..God bless you.

  5. Rachel, you are so gifted in articulating “life”…I really am blessed by your writings.
    Thank you for sharing your gift with us..beautiful lady….!! Love you girl, Cindy Murdock

  6. Hi Rach’! This is another timely blog post.

    Who we are today is a result of the decisions we make on a daily basis. This is why the journey we take is just as important as the goals we try to reach.

    God bless you.


  7. The small and insignificant moments in our lives determine our biggest decision that affect our happiness and what we can share with others… Praying about the small stuff matters to God as He hears our every prayer. Every single one…! Who has time for that in our world…? No one cares more for us than our Heavenly Father!
    This was a great insight for us all… Thanks, Rachel!
