I was just standing there looking at the old truck. I should have left the garage a while ago but I noticed I had not re-connected a grounding strap. Since the truck cab is resting on rubber mounts there must be a flexible braided brass strap connecting the metal cab to the steel frame. Without it the electrical system will not work. It is very important to get this done. It was just another little thing that had to be completed. I cannot tell you how many more little things still need to be accomplished. I have figured out that these things must not be overlooked. Each little undone thing is a potential nightmare waiting to terrorize my life, my ride, on the open highway. Sometimes I wish I could see all those little things right now and make a good list ahead of time. Unexpectedly, there is a new list of things demanding attention right now! On the other hand, if I really understood how much work there was yet to do I might become discouraged and quit. Maybe the blessing is in not knowing about all these things that remain unfinished. I am certain there will be some challenges yet to come but for now, I must keep going! Get something done every week. Stay faithful to the project. Until then I will just keep working on those things I already know about.
Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained.
Phil 3:15-16 (ESV)
