Life consists of one step at a time. We like to think in terms of leaps and bounds or quantum leaps. We want to see progress now and we want all problems to be resolved and cease. But life does not work out that way.
I find this true throughout the Bible, true in the psalms I read daily, at least on weekdays; I need to incorporate this reading of them into my weekends. And true in my own life. I find that instead of God taking certain problems and issues away, I have to learn to walk with him through them. This reminds me of Halfmom, AKA, Susan's recent post. Instead of being whiny, fussy babies, we need to grow up and get with God's program of our lives in following Jesus in this world. It's learning to draw near and be close to God and be dependent on him in the Jesus way, rather than in our own self-oriented way.
At any rate, I want to keep on trudging forward, and doing that with others in this Jesus way. We're ever dependent on God and interdependent on each other in Jesus to keep on this path and walk in this life.
