In those days when I learnt to write codes, I didn’t have a laptop. I was still an undergraduate, so I and a friend whom we learnt together, started a laptop repair venture right in our room. Other students brought us their laptops for repairs. Through that, we earned some income and at the same time, had laptops to run some of our codes.
Fast forward, I became prolific, a freelancer. I had improved, from practicing few lines, to writing whole applications for days, weeks, and sometimes months. When I got married, my wife was even shocked the first time she found me seated for 48 hours at a stretch writing codes. She thought, something was wrong. I simply smiled and said, ‘relax honey, that’s how we roll!’
You can’t achieve anything significant with whatever you do or have if you only do the ordinary and remain on the surface. You need to go deep, to climb high. You need to get serious at whatever you have found passion or purpose in. No one aiming to swim in a river, dips his legs at the bank, and runs back saying it’s cold, or that he’s had enough fun. The real fun is in throwing into the deep and getting soaked in the water.
In 2 Kings 2:2,4 and 6, we see, despite the fact that Elijah tried to restrain Elisha, yet, Elisha defied that and refused to stay behind. He chose to go with him. The only thing holding you from that height you desire is a depth you’re hesitating to go. You’re just a depth away from your desired height.
Check out trees that spend hundreds of years alive, what differentiates them from other trees is their depth. When you see an avid reader and nothing inspires you, or your church goes on a prayer retreat and you choose not to join, or your colleagues enroll for a new skill or degree and nothing provokes you to set aside resources to be a part, then you’ll only remain where you are while others go higher. Please don’t blame the devil, hold yourself responsible.. Because where there’s no depth, there can be no height!
