Have you ever got to that point where restropectively speaking, you gaze back at the freshly made steps you’ve just taken and wonder “how the fcuk did I get here??” I know all too often many of us, most of whom are ashamed to admit, have reached this point of anti-climax with both pride and disappointment. Pride at having come so far. Yet disappointed in the path your feet have decided to follow. Yes. I am all too familiar with this bittersweet junction. This junction where like the pawns on a chess board - your next move counts. Because you see, when you’re too busy engulfed by the bright lights that surround you, it’s all too easy to become distracted and loose sight of what’s ahead. Loose focus of what it is you are heading towards. Loose momentum in getting you to where you need to be. Sometimes you loose balance between enjoying the journey and reaching your destination, and forget that ultimately where you end up depends entirely on the route you take. Yes fun and laughter and games and enjoyment is and forever will be a pleasurable antecedent, but the end is inevitable, and it must be remembered that temporary fixations must not be allowed to blind and steer oneself away from a fate greater than present expectations.
We are all destined to account to more than our misendevours.
Think about it. Now take your next step.
"My friend, your heavenly Father cares for you in the same way as He lays out His plans for you. You are on His heart all the time as He carefully considers and makes plans for every aspect of your life, both big and small. And the very thought of you puts a smile on His face because He knows that the plans He has for you are plans to bless you. ( Jeremiah 29:11)
So no matter what problems you are facing right now, you can rest in His love for you. There is no problem that is too insignificant for Him to handle. He is not just God Almighty, He is also your heavenly Father who loves you!”
