Pressing forward.

On this journey of life these feet have had to walked through some rough paths but have never stopped to walk anyway. I have made wrong choices, have failed to understand life in many ways and I keep making mistakes. But one thing I am proud of is that I have always showed up and kept pressing forward anyway. When I get to the end of my life I hope I get to regret for the things I did and the mistakes I made by showing up rather than regretting for not taking chances and not showing up.

On my walk with the Lord I have learned to ask Him if it’s about the storm or what the storm is suppose to produce in me because every time these feet have had to walk through the rough paths it has been for reasons beyond my capacity to understand. The storms I walked through had lessons that I had to lay hold of to help me become a stronger person on the other side. I know that there is a destiny attached to me that keep these feet going even when it seems like they have no more strength to take a step forward. I have survived against many odds and I still quite don’t know who I am and where I am headed but I know the One who is leading me and so every step I take I am confident that He is there to lay the ground. Even when these feet try and run astray from Him, He keeps pulling me back to Him and that is the love I can’t escape. There is something down on the inside of me that won’t let me quit, get bitter, fall apart or fall into what the world says it’s okay but keeps me standing strong.

I don’t have it all figured out and I keep making mistakes but one thing I am confident of is that I am never going to stop moving forward. I know I am going to get tired, discouraged and exhausted but that’s all part of the journey and so I am going to keep going. At times I have had to walk away, walk away from relationships not meant for me, situations that don’t align with where I am headed , and opportunities that didn’t have my name over them. I have been better off walking away from all that were not in alignment with me because on the other side I have been so much better and happier.

I have been stuck at times. I have learned that it is okay to look stuck for a little while and walk at my own phase. At times it seems like I was on my way to the destiny but no longer on that way.  In situations like these I remind myself that that the one I trust in is God enough to give me wings to soar like an eagle if I need. He has always gone ahead of me and made the crooked path straight so I have no reason to not believe. Many a times I have tried to out smart God and run ahead but every time I did so I have had to fall back and cry for His help.

If you are in a season of feeling stuck, your feet don’t seem to move forward and if you are wondering if you are going to make it to the other side then let me remind you that you are in that place of ‘stuck’ for a reason. There are some construction work going on inside of you so don’t just give up yet. Identify the path you are on and just keep pressing forward because what you are walking towards is worth every storm that you will face on the way.

Keep pressing forward and know that everything you are going through is aligned to where you are headed.
