“As thou goest, step by step I will open up the way before thee”.
Proverbs 4:12 (A Literal translation from the Hebrew)
At the moment, I am living on the 4th floor of a building. I can choose to use the lift/elevator or take the stairs. If I take the lift, I press a button, walk in, press another button and a minute later, I'm on the 4th floor.
The staircase is different. You can only see one section of the stairs at one. You have to take steps. The only way to the top is to keep taking the next step. You can't jump up a whole flight of stairs at a time.
Living life is like going up a flight of stairs. You can't know ahead what the future will hold. You just have to take one step at a time. When you've taken one step, you can then take the second step. You need to live one day at a time.
My life is filled with changes at the moment. My baby has been in intensive care for the last 6 weeks since she's been born. Sometime she will need heart surgery. As we don't know exactly when it will happen, everything is a little uncertain. She also has Down Syndrome.We have 3 other little children. Maybe you can understand a little why I have often felt very overwhelmed over the last few months! I have to remind myself over and again to just take each day as it comes and not worry about tomorrow.
I still need to think ahead, make plans and pray, but I can make the most of today and trust God for His help tomorrow. And God has supplied all our needs so far. And far above!
Do you have decisions to make? Changes ahead? Are you moving to a new place? Health problems? A job to find?
You don't need to feel overwhelmed! Just live one day at a time and take the next step. God will open up the way as you go.
This is the day that the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 11:24
