Fixing My Gaze

It is hard for me to fix my gaze directly forward and not all around me at everyone else, yet fixing my eyes on my own path is the only way to progress in my own life and achieve my own goals.

Too often I jump onto social media sites to see what others are up to. I read of their hopes and dreams and see what they are accomplishing, only to find myself lacking.

Instead of taking the steps ahead that I need to take in faith, I remain paralyzed with fear and doubt and comparison.

It’s time to take some steps of my own.

I appreciate my daughter and the inspiring way she has put herself out there this year. If you have never read her blog, check it out here and consider following her to stay updated with, and inspired by, her progress.

I am still figuring out what my steps actually look like. There are a few close to me who have heard my heart and helped me to identify what it would be to move forward with my dream amidst the responsibilities I carry. There is a fine line there and a place of incredible balance.

Someone once said, Baby steps. I’m taking them.

Let your eyes look directly forward and your gaze be straight before you.
Ponder the path of your feet, then all your ways will be sure.
Proverbs 4:28-29

May he grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans.
Psalm 20:4

    Thank you for this wonderful reminder . . .

    One step at a time,
    only one step at a time.
    This is the way the Lord will lead you one step at a time.
    Take that one step carefully,
    walk that one step prayerfully,
    this is the way to victory,
    one step at a time!

    Walking with you in my heart today! Proverbs 4:18
