“No one sees those little …””

Standard

“Sometimes when we read the words of those who have been more than conquerors, we feel  almost despondent.  I feel that I shall never be like that. But they won through step by step. By little bits of wills, little denials of self, little inward victories.  By faithfulness in very little things

They became what they are. No one sees those little hidden steps, they only see the accomplishment, but even so, those small steps were taken.

There is no sudden triumph , no (sudden) spiritual maturity. That is the work of the moment.”

Amy Carmichael
