The ground is shaking beneath me, I stumble towards my destination with apace only for the ground to crumble underneath my tired feet. I question my ability to succeed and wonder if maybe it’s time to bid farewell, for the dream appears out of reach now. I stare at the firmament and buck up the courage to ask my self honestly, are my feet really tired or are they nervous? Perhaps my feet are twitching because change is happening, is it change that I am afraid of?
This flexuous journey has smothered my feet with aging scars, but I must continue. Too far have I came to return, my eyes are on the abode, I am not alone. Yet I’m nervous of the unknown… It all appeared so simple in the beginning, but I had no idea all the pain that laid within. Each weak step barely supported this heavy soul, but I still I will carry on.
Sometimes it seems the journey to the promised land takes much longer than we hoped. The Israelites took 40 years for a 2 week journey because murmuring held them back. God is not searching for eloquent speakers, he is just looking for willing hearts.
My own journey with God right now I sense God has brought me to the red sea. The red sea is a place God brings you when it seems there is no possible way, a place where a great miracle can happen. It is here that the impossible way is made possible and you walk through the ground once covered with hopelessness.
Take one step today towards the promised land, tomorrow take another. The steps may be weak at first but they are strengthened with time. You cannot fail if you do not quit, no matter how many times you have fallen. When you walk through the valley, no that you are not alone and that multitudes have walked this journey before you.
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me, your rod and staff they comfort me.
Psalm 37:23 the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and he delights in his way.
Love and God bless
