Take The Next Step

I've been considering a lot of things lately. There are a lot of things going on, a lot of options ahead, and a path that is at a fork in the road. Its time to camp for a bit and look at a map.

I've been trying to figure out what to do next, and struggling a bit with where I am, and which way to turn. These struggles are good, but it can be hard sometimes to figure out who you are and where you are and where you're going next. Its part of the journey, a necessary part. And I've been watching and looking for answers and directions.

Over and over, whenever I've taken time to stop and listen, or pay attention to the message being presented to me, it seems to be saying the same thing. Take the next step. And always there is a reminder that I don't know where that next step will ultimately lead, and I do not know what the step after next will be and when. All I know is I have to take a step, and not worry about the rest.

Just do the next thing. Take the next step. Trust God that He will shine the spotlight on what to do next.


  1. You just described the story of my life for the past 8 months! I finally made a few big decisions, decided to stick with it and then everything started falling into place. I can see the map now! :)

  2. BTW, we met briefly at the last HSA Reunion and your blog is one of those that I really like reading...but I have a tendency to forget to read blogs so I was happy to happen across yours again today. :)

  3. Aww, so good to hear from you Abigail! I sometimes feel no one reads this blog at all...but thats okay, because I mostly write it for myself. :) Thanks for your comment!
