"Stand ... in holy places, and be not moved" (D&C 87:8).
As I think about standing, I'm reminded of two phrases from hymns I frequently sing at church. Attributed to Robert Keen (ca. 1787) is "How Firm a Foundation," the title of a hymn that reminds me that Jesus is the rock on which I should build and that He is always with me and will provide me the succor I need. In "Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah," William Williams (1717-1791) wrote, "We are weak, but thou art able." This helps me to remember that, ultimately, my strength comes from Jesus.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Digging a little deeper into this moral from one of Aesop's fables, I see I need to add deliberate to the process:
"Slow and steady definitely do not win the race alone. Slow, steady, and deliberate wins the race, when punctuated by occasional sprints. It’s not enough to make daily, measured progress on your work if it’s not deliberate progress.Source: Accidental Creative
