Just ONE Step!

We all inevitably have life events come up out of nowhere, or we want to do something that is a lot of work, or maybe we even think it’s not possible. The fact is WE, yes, all of us can look back at our lives and realize we had done some great things. Things that we never thought could get done, but they did! Why is that? I believe that we as humans think of our goals or that unexpected thing and get overwhelmed. Not all the time, but more often than not. I have found that it is a great idea to get a birds-eye view of the overall situation, and then it is baby steps from there on out. Some steps are bigger than others, but the goal is to keep moving forward. There will be hiccups and obstacles, so we must keep our eyes focused and do one thing at a time. Once you complete step one, move on to step two, so on and so on. It DOES NOT MATTER how hard you think it will be; you have to move forward and make progress. You already know these things, but it is good to refresh your mind and realize you got this!

*REMEMBER*

Make a plan, and then one step at a time TAKE ACTION!

  1. But what should we do when our dreams and aspirations in life don’t coincide with the gifts and talents God has given us? For instance, what do you tell the young man who put his heart and soul into training and developing his physical prowess for the day where he’d try to become an elite warrior in the special forces, only to have his dream ruined by non-stop injuries that require surgical intervention and the like. The young man might tell himself, “I won’t give up!” and continue to push himself till his body is mangled with chronic inflammation. This man is me and it’s been my struggle for the last 6 years. I can’t do any serious level of cardio or weight training without bringing on bouts of tendinitis that last weeks on end. It’s killing me, my soul cries out to the Lord all too often about this. I tell the Lord, “I just want to be an elite warrior, like Kind David and the ancient heroes who fought for your Kingdom, my ancestors who conquered the world in your holy name. Why did you make me this way, a broken man, a weak specimen?” If the Lord didn’t mean for me to be an elite warrior I think I can learn to accept that and embrace His will, whatever it may be, but it’s so difficult. All my life I’ve been DISGUSTED my mediocrity, I pushed myself to absurd limits in my youth just to the best at whatever I tried, and the only thing I ever reaped from that was failure and pain. The failure has already happened, but I never truly accepted it. I fear accepting the fact that I’ve failed just about everything I’ve ever sought to achieve. When all you have in your heart day in and day out is envy and jealously and self-rage, after a while you figure out that you need to get this stuff out of your heart or the stress of it all is just gonna kill you early. Most of my twenties have already passed me by and I feel like an old man, I feel as if my whole life has passed me by and I see no future for myself. The cross is heavy for the passionate heart. My only hope is in Christ Jesus and the promise that this struggle will find meaning in eternal glory in heaven one day, but in order to do that my soul must stay strong and not despair.

    1. I read this a few times before responding. Life is hard, and there are letdowns for sure, but there are victories as well. So here are a few things that I personally lean on when I “think” the way you describe, just like every other human being out there.

      1. doors close and doors open
      2. Proverbs 3:5- Trust in the Lord with your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. HOLD ON TO THIS

      We, as humans, are not supposed to have the answers to it all. What you think maybe your path may not be where you are supposed to be. Sucks to hear, I know, but that is the case. I have had the same thing happen, and it will again. BUT, new things come up, and I believe I am better off than if I went where I thought I should go or do. This does not mean you give up; follow your heart, but keep your mind open.
