So I had a cool moment. I’ve been trying to get in shape, really trying, since last October. The Catalyst? The mud run. It kicked my butt up and down. I’ve always been kind of athletic, but I got totally embarrassed by my fitness level.
This past weekend, I ran the same mud run, only 6 months after the initial mud run.
I crushed it.
I had this cool moment on the monkey bars. These monkey bars are probably about 7ft tall. I couldn’t even jump up to grab them the first time and once I got up there with some help, I could only make it across 4 bars…
Hopped up there and swung across like a pro. It was intense and just super awesome for me.
It gave me a measuring stick for my fitness. I feel like our ministries need something similar.
We need clear measuring sticks to judge our effectiveness.
What is a measuring stick that you are using to judge your growth? Is it encouraging?
