Take The Next Right Step
When I say my life of recovery is all consuming I promise that’s not a lie. From sun up to sun down I keep seeking to take the next faith step. I track every step, watch every calorie and monitor my nightly sleep. I make sure my spinal cord stimulater stays on track and my heating pads are always beside me. I now limit my online time so that I can spend more time seeking God. I just finished up a 45 mile walk week. Over the past 6 months alone I’ve walked over 850 miles and taken nearly 2,000,000 steps. I’m may not feel perfect, but oh how far God has brought me.
I’m living proof that if you do your part God will do the rest. If you put your little hand in His big hand. He will take you further than you can ever dream of going by yourself. It’s not overnight, but one faithful step at a time. Yes, I admit that I was very afraid in the past. Why? Because I just didn’t know if things could ever get any better.
Now, I’m hopeful everyday can be better than before. All I did six months ago was fully release things into God’s hands. I said, Lord I will do whatever it takes to move forward. I didn’t know where that would lead, but I trusted my all knowing, all loving, all powerful leader. God has not disappointed or abandoned me. Instead, He has picked me up and taken me up a hill I could never climb alone. I encourage you to not give up. Instead, give things up to the Lord and trust His miracle ability.
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
“We don’t give up. Our bodies are becoming weaker and weaker. But our spirits are being renewed day by day. Our troubles are small. They last only for a short time. But they are earning for us a glory that will last forever. It is greater than all our troubles. So we don’t spend all our time looking at what we can see. Instead, we look at what we can’t see. That’s because what can be seen lasts only a short time. But what can’t be seen will last forever.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
