Definition of Consistent
Acting or done in the same way over time, especially so as to be fair or accurate; continue in
I know of this shower faucet that no matter how tight you twist the knob, it always drips. One drop after the other. Ceaselessly – drip! drip! drip!. The drip consistency becomes an annoyance pretty quick – I know you get me. To reduce the annoyance, we learnt to put a bucket where all these drips would collect and goodness! The bucket would be full at the end of the day. This meant that put in the right environment and given enough time, that same dripping with that same consistency, can have an enormous difference in the life of a thirsty person(s).
It’s funny how consistency is one of the most desired character yet the hardest to achieve. Being consistent reminds me of great men in the bible like Abraham – who never lost his faith in God even in the most trying time of sacrificing his son, Moses, Joseph & Paul – who would die for their faith in God. It’s clear that God desires us to be consistent.
Personally, I have struggled with this very thing. Sometimes I get so excited to start a positive habit like a schedule to grow spiritually, working out, eating healthy, reading a book etc. What I have found is that at that moment when you are in a good mood, it is so easy to feel excited and energetic to pursue the habits but when all the good and positive vibe are gone and life hits you, you quickly refrain or fore-go the habit.
Consistency drove Daniel to his knees when crisis came. Consistency will enables you to make it through your darkest days. Consistency is what will push you to persevere, press on and to “stick by the stuff”.
Can you characterize your life as consistent?
Consistency will always win over excitement and time is a robust ally. Drip! drip! drip! one drop at a time, no matter how small, it always makes a difference. So keep on keeping on!
God bless yo
