A STEP AT A TIME
A friend of ours thoroughly enjoyed his costumed status as Mr. Dragon, promoting his wife's stained glass shop. Often Mr. Dragon could be seen lumbering along in parades or at special events, all to the glee of his audience. Mr. Dragon is big and blue with a puffy silver tummy. Realistic “hands” and “feet” stretch out in humorous action as his toothful grin towers above the tallest man. His tail swishes happily back and forth as he walks.
When my daughter wondered aloud, “How can Mr. Dragon see where he’s going?” The answer: “One step at a time.” He couldn’t see any farther ahead than that.
How like life that is for us as followers of Jesus. We may not be able to see far into the future but we can see just that far ahead - one step at a time. As God directs our every step, the next step we are to take becomes clear.
The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord, He delights in every detail of their lives.
Heavenly Father, please direct my every step. I trust in You implicitly. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
