"Walk peacefully with Me through this day...one step at a time...keep your mind on My Presence and taking the next step. I designed you for deep dependence on (Me.) When you don't know what to do, wait while I open the way before you." (323)
Like many others, I like being well-planned, well-organized, well-thought through. However, the life of faith requires a "deep dependence" on Someone we cannot see and on some things we cannot control. That runs so counter to my human nature.
Over the last few weeks I have been in the recovery process from foot surgery. I've had to calculate carefully my "next steps" to make the most of every step-effort. Having to think ahead so that each trip across the room or to the other end of the house is maximized.
Our walk with Jesus is such a "next step" process. I've discovered that to maximize my daily walk with Him means I must "keep my mind on Him," intentionally focusing on Him and His Presence. It's not about all I am doing...it's all about what HE is doing and how I need to "be ready to follow His lead."
