I was recently officiating a funeral, when one young man who had just lost his grandfather, was recounting losing his father at a very young age.  He said that he got through those tough days by simply “putting one foot in front of the other.”

Then shortly after that, one gentleman in our morning prayer group was sharing a story about his friend, a WWII veteran, who was one of only a few people to survive the Bataan Death March … How did he do it?  He said that he would look at a point on the path just a little bit farther than they were at the moment, and he would say to himself, “I can go that far.”  Then when he got there, and he would do that again – and again -and again.

That’s not entirely unlike what Nik Wallenda did back in 2012 in my hometown – Niagara Falls, NY.  Take a look at these pictures …

Talk about putting one foot in front of the other!

There are times and circumstances in your life, where you could become paralyzed by fear and the difficulty of the situation…  OR… you can choose to go on by putting one foot in front of the other and keep moving on faith.   Let me suggest that you do the latter.  And when you do … it’s amazing what God will bring you through… and where God will bring you to.

Walking with Jesus, day by day,
