As a child we are so innocent. We come into the world knowing nothing except what’s constantly entering our senses as we take in and absorb our surroundings. We are so careless and have not the slightest idea of the definition of fear or love. We begin to grow and take in people, surroundings, and develop a basic level of understanding. We are solely dependent upon our loved ones who spend their lives taking care to protect and guide us to become the person God has called us to be. As we grow even older, we begin to understand that eventually we will be on our own and there are many different paths to choose and walk down that will help train us to be the best that we can be for our future family that we will have to create under the hand of God. We understand that we must learn to do things on our own, be responsible, and most importantly, follow the will of God. However, there is some point in life where we will find ourselves stuck and in stagnant waters, not knowing where to go or what to do next. And that is perfectly okay.
Each day is a new journey. It’s another day to walk with God. Does it have to be a perfect journey? No. Life in itself is one big journey. We should walk the walk as if we are a child again: innocent, fearless, curious. A quote by Chanda Kochhar says, “Aim for the sky, but move slowly, enjoying every step along the way. It is all those little steps that make the journey complete.” Loved ones and parents enjoy every little thing and accomplishment (no matter how big or small) that their child did as they were growing up. Similarly, our journey in the Father’s eyes, each step we take, is important to God. He wants us to take the right path and end up in the right place, but each step along the way and how we handle it is even more important than how we get there. Our Father is cheering us on, helping us take those first few steps and speak those first few words to help us be the best that we can be. He helps to mature, shape, and mold us into who we are called to be. Don’t worry what’s around the bend, just focus on where you’re at now. God will provide and equip you with what you need to be sustained and taken care of. You are in good hands as long as you stay faithful and true without worry or doubt. And if you do worry or doubt, He will be right there with you to help you through it because you are never alone on the journey. There are many ups and downs to the journey of life that we all walk. How we walk the journey is what matters the most because that will determine exactly where we will end up.
