Step by Step

When I look at this picture, it reminds me of so many things. It first reminds me of the song Whitney Houston did off The Preacher’s Wife’s album, called “Step by Step”. The lyrics say, “step by step, bit by bit, stone by stone.” But my favorite part says…”I know you’re hurting, and I know you’re blue. I know you’re hurting but don’t let the bad things get to you.” When we we are in a bad place and we are hurting, we can’t see the steps ahead that God has already placed for us. Proverbs 20:24: says “The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?” That’s why we just need to take small steps of faith and know that our steps are already ordered and set for us. Like the picture, it’s not possible to take big steps and it’s not even required. All you have to do is take it bit by bit, day by day. Like our Fitbit or Apple watch, we don’t really know where we are going to be when we hit that 10,000 step goal. That’s how it works when God prepares your steps. We don’t know where we are going to be when we are finished with our steps. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. “You don’t need to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” You’re gonna be ok, just take take a step today.
