TAKE THE NEXT STEP.
Sometimes life gets pretty challenging. One of my favorite authors, Elisabeth Elliot, has advice I have followed when the road gets rough: just do the next thing. When I would rather wallow in self-pity or keep my eyes on my circumstances, I am nudged forward by the understanding that my God is with me. He is for me, not against me. His desires for me are always good, to prosper my soul and my whole being.
I received Jesus as my Savior when I was 35, so I began my journey with Him. As I continue to move forward, His Word is my map. They Holy Spirit has sealed me forever, so my good works are only a reflection of Him in me. I don’t have to earn favor with my Heavenly Father. I am now His child. I exchanged my old self for the new self in Christ. I need no longer fear where the path ahead leads. With all the twists and turns of life, I can boldly trudge through -- I just need to keep doing the next thing.
