The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way. (Psalm 37:23 NKJV)
Take one step at a time. I know on this journey you may not see the way clearly but take one step at a time. God will be your Newel Post, the anchor of the stairway, a support that helps bear the weight of the rest of the way. A newel is always found at the foot of a flight of stairs and at the top of the stairway. A newel is placed at every juncture where the stairway changes directions. God is your Newel post providing support and bearing the way at the beginning, the end and at every turn along the stairway.
As you begin to climb, God will bring you to a landing that will provide you time for healing, rest, and restoration. He will bring you to a landing place to guide you around the obstacles of life. The landing will provide you direction and next steps. Trust Him. He says in Psalm 32:8, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” (Psalm 32:8 NKJV) He will help you rise and tread. Rise and tread. Before you know it, you will have risen and completed a run to the next landing.
I enCOURAGE you to keep taking one step at a time. God will be with you every step of the way. Take time to heal in your own way. Grieve in your own way. Healing is a journey and a climb. Take one day at a time. Take one breathe at a time. Take one step at a time.
