You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11
Steps…We take them as we walk in life. They propel us to move ahead and take us where we need to arrive. They lead us close to our goals and allow us to remember why we don’t need to run.
Sometimes, we take baby steps. We don’t know where to go and have trouble seeing what’s ahead. But, God reminds us strength will come, when we choose to walk with Jesus. He helps us recognize why we must step slowly and learn how it feels to TRUST.
Christ holds us when we’re weak and have no strength to move along. He lifts us with His arms of love and reminds us to hold on tight. He helps us understand there IS a plan for our days and prepares us to walk again, when we have been held in His holiness.
When we have allowed the love of God to slow us down and redirect our steps, Jesus will place our feet on solid ground and lead us on a path of purpose. He will help us never forget why we must ALWAYS take baby steps before we are ready to run.
Dear God, Thank you for this day of opportunity to remember why we must slow down and feel Your presence of peace. Forgive us when we race ahead and move along on our own. We will TRUST in the power of Your greatness and remember You have a plan for our days. And, we will choose to follow Jesus EVERY day of our lives. Amen
