You have to walk your own walk in this life. And as you are traveling down your road, don’t look down at your feet. Keep your head up and your eyes focused on what you know to be true.
Be neither a follower nor a leader of people. Acknowledge God on your journey. You are not forsaken; you are forgiven, and when shadows exist simply find higher ground to tread upon. If you come across an obstacle or an impasse, pay mind to it but don’t focus on it for too long or your feet may sink into the quicksand that surrounds it. Find the courage and use the faith God gave you to surmount it and continue on your journey.
Offer your hand to those you come across who are stuck in their own personal sand traps, if you know the way, point them in the direction you feel they must go, but ultimately it will be their decision.
Be honest, tell others that they are never alone, and they will eventually find their way. When you get to where you are going and you look back, it is your own footprints you see and glancing up seeing familiar faces who headed your words.
And finally, the importance of your trials and tribulations is a gift to be beholden, for that is how you will learn who you truly are; and how you handle them is how people will know you.
You are more than a conqueror; when you trust in the Lord. Amen, or oh me?
