Last week while I was walking along the icy trail with Georgia I had to be mindful of my steps. After I slipped a few times, I realized that the best path for me to take was to step off the trail and create my own path beside the trail, I had better traction there.
It made me think about this truth in life. For most of my life I was following the trail where other people were leading me or following other people’s footsteps. I often found myself slipping and sliding along those paths. It was when I chose to step off that trail and start establishing my own path in life, that I gained traction in my life and my footing became purposeful and secure.
I share this in case you, or someone you know, may be on that slippery trail and/or following other people’s steps rather than establishing your own.
I invite you to join me to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
And let’s get off the slippery trail of following other people’s paths in life. Let’s choose to establish our own unique path in life as the people we were made to be, taking steps that are firm and secure. And although the paths we are in may be different, I am grateful to walk beside you on this trail in life and see who you really are, from the inside out.
With love and hope,
"Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure." - Proverbs 4:26
