But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;
I had nearly lost my foothold.
For I envied the arrogant
when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
The other night I got home from a run and the first thing that I did was open up my phone app and analyze my best and worst kilometers the throughout the session. I tried to recall what I was thinking about and focused on in both the faster ones and the slower ones so that I could apply what I had learned about myself the next time that I started a run.
There is a lot value in self-evaluation.
I love that the psalmist looks back on his own steps and recognizes where he wasn’t the strongest rather than simply concluding “Well, I made it through! I must be crushin’ it!”
I want to evaluate myself in the past and present in such a way that I am ready to be at my best in what is still to come.
