One step at a time,,,,one day at a time.
I am reminded in one of my daily readings this morning to take life one step at a time, one day at a time.
I can look at the days ahead and be overwhelmed by all that I perceive I have to get done. The mind’s wanderings can lead me into a lot of “what-ifs” that lead to nowhere but more obsessive thoughts.
I will, just for today, make the attempt to take each of the day’s events as they come and do what needs to be done for that next step. I’ll try to stay in the here-and-now, the present moment, knowing that I’ll have the strength to do what needs to be done.
The Bible verse I was led to this morning: “In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” (Isaiah 30:15) This is also a kindly reminder to quiet the myriad thoughts that might run through my mind and know that the God of my understanding is watching over the all of it and will give me the necessary strength to face and conquer whatever might lie ahead of me this day and in the days to come.
