"The LORD your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little. You will not be allowed to eliminate them all at once, or the wild animals will multiply around you."
Deut. 7:22

This morning, I got up in time to read a little bit in Battlefield of the Mind. The chapter was titled "Little by Little". I found this ironic, since by the time I finished praying, I only had five minutes to read and only read one page. The chapter was explaining that sometimes God slowly heals us, instead of doing it instantly. The book explained that if we got better too rapidly, we would be more likely to become prideful, rely on our own power, and not as much on don't have to worry about me though: going one page at a time :p

Seriously though, a little bit is better than nothing. Take the steps, even if its just a page a day, a ten minute walk a day, or whatever is needed for your gradual improvement.
