Where It Counts


I have this work out DVD  and during the most intense part of the work out, the instructor says "this is where it counts the most."

The line jumped out at me one day. I had just almost given in to the temptation to stop.

This.is. where. it. counts. the. most.

  At times life can feel like a gruelling work out. Yes?
          whether it is health , financial burdens, 
 difficult relationships, regret, or simply the daily grind of living.

 What counts most is  when we find that dose of grit we didn't know we had... that resiliency to keep going; that burst of strength to believe the impossible. 
 That courage plucked out of a crevice in a concrete world.

Flowers look to the sun so the shadows fall behind them. (Helen Keller)
True colours  are vibrant in adversity.


Facing a difficult day? .... keep going. 
The rewards are waiting for you because remember; this is where it counts the most.

      Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest
                                 IF WE DO NOT GIVE UP!  (Galatians 6:9)

I wrote this a few weeks ago but I thought I'd share here at the beginning of a new month, beginning of Lent,
and HOPEFULLY the beginning of spring!!


  1. Hi Lucy,

    You are so right, and very observant! It IS the difficult, trying days, that challenge our confidence, our strength and our will. When those days are met with success, then we truly DO feel a sense of accomplishment, which may not be evident to others, but only to ourselves, whether it is deep in our heart, or a sense of presence in our cerebral self, both worthy spaces, where it counts!


  2. I'm taking that word to heart today... This.is. where. it. counts. the. most.
    It get tempting to slow down, quit entirely, just when it's going to make the difference.
    Don't stop now... we're almost there.

    Reminds me of what Jesus says in Rev 2:25..Only hold fast to what you have until I come. And my favourite verse I go to again and again as a life focus...from 11 Peter 3:14...So beloved, be eager to be found by Him at His coming without spot or blemish and at peace (in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts.

    So... THANK YOU for these words.



thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
