steps

The first steps begin today. the journey has begun. i feel so strained, so alone, so sad. we must mourn for the old life and rejoice for the new. so today we are mourning the old, but i am so uncertain about the future. tears pour as i think about what might be, the worries, the change, the unknown. God encourages Israel saying, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” on these words, i stand this day, shaking, hopeful, scared, expectant.

Today i prayed for those taking the first steps. those who are on the new path, those who are unsure of the future. i pray that You would come beside them and uphold them and love them and reassure them and strengthen them. i pray that God would bring people into your day that will be encouraging, inspiring, a breath of fresh air to make the journey that much easier. i pray that as we walk this path together, it would not be too much to bear, that you would reach out to the One who walks with you, that you would allow Him to hold you when things seem overwhelming, that you would call to Him and He would answer your heart.

Today i prayed for you…
