I didn't learn anything completely brand new today, but I have been thinking lately about all the loved ones I and my friends have lost this year. And some of the brand new trials some of my closest friends are facing and I realize it makes you cherish each moment of the journey that is not difficult.
I read the following today, " The road is often merciful, hiding the hard places from us at times when we are weak. All that we are required to do is to put one foot in front of the other. And then do it again." Obedience is what is required in following Christ. Just obedience.
Every road has a beginning and an end. It really describes our life perfectly. We can choose to take a turn and we can even get lost if we go off on our own. An obedient life is little more than one foot in front of the other, over and over again always moving in the direction of maturity in Christ.
It was good to read this simple reminder today to move forward, not to dwell in the past and not to worry about the future.
