The troubles of the day

Where I live you can’t help but have to run up hills, and they are not little hills! Everyone has their own technique for getting up them but the only way I can get up them is to put my head down and look at the road in front of me. I keep saying to myself, one more step , every step is a step nearer and before you know it you are at the top of the hill.

Jesus said, “each day has enough troubles of its own. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself” (Matt 6:34). I employ the same technique on those kind of days as I do on hills. Take one step at a time and before you know it you will be at the top.

Sometimes all we can do is take one step in front of us – to look at the bigger picture or the top of the hill would be too intimidating. What is the mountain that your are facing today? Know that God has grace for your situation, it’s not like God is surprised by what you are facing. There is strength in Him and know that tomorrow is a new day.
