I bless you to believe
For one percent improvement.
Mistake me not—
I do bless you to dream big,
For great conquests,
Of vast Promised Lands.
It’s just that,
Big territories are acquired
Little by little.
“Little by little
I will drive them out from before you,”
Said the Lord to His people
When He promised them Canaan. (Ex. 23:30)
It’s great news because
It’s a whole lot easier to have faith
For one percent
Than for the whole kit and caboodle.
If it’s hard to imagine having the patience of Job,
I bet you can see yourself one percent more longsuffering.
If it’s hard to envision losing 100 pounds
I bet you can find confidence to lose one pound.
One percent today,
One percent tomorrow,
One percent the next day,
You’ve conquered all of Canaan!
