In this dance of life, God asks us simply to take steps of trust. Often, those steps can feel like blind leaps of faith, and we would kind of rather not take them, you know? Life is this twisting, turning, constant motion of ups, downs, and all arounds, but thankfully, we have a calm center inside of us, God Himself, who guides us through. We don’t have to navigate. We don’t have to steer the ship of our lives. What relief and grace and freedom there is in knowing that God navigates and God steers. We can let go of trying to control our lives, and instead, take grace steps of trust and of faith.
Dear one, when you, when I, when we, let go of navigating and steering our lives, something beautiful sweeps in to cover us, calm us, and center us…it’s a grace, a power, and a presence…it’s His Grace, His Power, and His Presence. He takes over and just leads. He just leads. And He just LOVES to lead! And so often, we don’t let Him. We don’t let Him lead because we are so busy leading.
What if we let go of leading and just took steps of trust today? What would that look like for you today? What blessings and goodness and sweetness might God have for you on the other side of a step of trust? A step of trust is uncomfortable and feels foreign at first, but on the other side is peace, His peace. He invites us to step towards Him, allowing Him to navigate and steer our lives, so that we can experience His leading presence. Steps of trust become steps of joy as we relearn how to trust God with our steps. Oh and sweet dancing hearts, He is guiding ALL of your steps. He has EACH one planned out. He guards YOUR every step. Each step of trust you take towards Him results in a divine grace that can’t be described.
Today, trust. Trust His lead of your life. Trust His care of your heart. Trust He is right there in that thing with you. Trust that He cares about ALL the details of your life. Today, take one step of trust at a time. Beauty is born where His strength meets you in your weakness with His beautiful grace. And that spot, that beautiful grace-filled sweet spot of abundant life, is found when we take steps of trust.
“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'” Isaiah 30:21
