Pour all your energy into trusting Me. It is through trust that you stay connected to Me, aware of My Presence. Every step on you life-journey can be a step of faith. Baby steps of trust are simple for you; you can take them with almost unconscious ease. Giant steps are another matter altogether: leaping across chasms in semidarkness, scaling cliffs of uncertainty trudging through the valley of shadow of death. These feats require sheer concentration, as well as utter commitment to Me.
Each of my children is a unique blend of temperament, giftdness, and life experience. Something that is a baby step for you may be a giant step for another person, and vice versa. Only I know the difficulty or ease of each segment of your journey. Beware of trying to impress others by acting as if your giant steps are only baby ones. Do not judge others who hesitate, in trembling fear, before an act that would be easy for you. If each of my children would seek to please me above all else, fear of others‘ judgements would vanish, as would attempts to impress others. Focus your attention on the path just ahead of you and on the One who never leaves your side.
I was blessed by this passage. Hope you will be also.
