“Now” by Mallary Hope
“I’ll put one foot in front of another, take one breath and then take another. Lead the way, Lord. I’m gonna follow you. ‘Cause you’re faithful every moment, when it’s easy, when it isn’t. You’ve never led me wrong, never let go. Your love is strong and your arms still hold me right here to forever. Like a child and like a treasure from the start to the end, through the ups and downs. You were with me then, and you’re with me now.”
Life is a journey and thankfully when we know Jesus, we never have to walk alone through its ups and downs. Our job is to put one foot in front of another and take one breath at a time. He will lead. He will guide. And he has our best in mind, even when we can’t see it. When it’s hard for us to have hope, when we don’t feel like saying “bring it on,” he will be strong for us. He is faithful every moment and he will hold our hand, just like a little child needs hand-holding. He will scoop us up in his arms, just like we scoop up the children in our own lives. He has been with us in the past and he is with us NOW!
Isaiah 41:13 “For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear; I will help you.”
Questions: Have you ever had a day when all you could do was put one foot in front of another and take one breath at a time? What did you do to help you “take hold of God’s hand” at times like that? How do you experience the strong arms of God holding you up?
Prayer Power: Lord, help me to put my hand in yours and take one step at a time and one breath at a time, trusting you as I walk through this journey of life. I know that you want the best for me and that you have a plan. Help me to trust you NOW as I have in the past.
