A Meditation for a new week’s journey.
In life, both spiritual and actual, it is often deemed better to take the elevator. It is quicker, we get to our destination faster. How much better we all think our circumstances would be if we could ask of the Lord for instant …….healing, abilities to forgive and follow Him into pastures green and fertile. We, of course can always ask this of Him. He knows and we know an elevator would zipp us into the future, and all our problems could be left behind. However, when the answer is not INSTANT this then may entail a struggle. Following Him means that though we may struggle one day, one step at a time, His Purposes still are being fulfilled. Its the ones on the way, contacts, connections etc. etc .we meet, that cement purpose. An elevator would carry us instantly to fulfill His Plans. (Often this is the case)…….but……when we are forced to take the stairs, this too, in His Will, is when we need His Strength, His Grace and His Directing, and have an opportunity to learn from Him whatever He desires to teach along the way. The destination ultimately is the same but the lessons can be life-affirming and changing.
If you are forced by life to ‘take the stairs’ and not the elevator. Breathe deeply of His Love….then take one step, one day one lesson at a time.
Shalom! PEACE and Grace to you each one.
Thank you for your PRAYERS and love. These are tangible and much appreciated.
