From The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews:

“I will persist without exception. I will continue despite exhaustion. I acknowledge that most people quit when exhaustion sets in. I am not “most people.” I am stronger than most people. Average people accept exhaustion as a matter of course. I do not. Average people compare themselves with other people. That is why they are average. I compare myself to my potential. I am not average. I see exhaustion as a precursor to victory.”

Usually a quote like this pumps me up but these are not usual times. If the quote is true, I must be on the verge of winning some kind of Olympic medal.

In between the time he climbed upon the cross, beaten and exhausted... and the moment when he rose again in total glory... even Christ did nothing but rest.

For a complete day, while those who counted on him most cried in agony and despair, Christ rested.

Perhaps rest is the true precursor to victory.
