Little steps could very well represent major crossroads in our lives.
Anna took her first steps at six years old (with the aide of a walker). Alan, I and several friends witness the event with tears and cheers.
Some time after that event, I saw a beautiful word picture expressing the importance of these little steps. I saw people in the gym who saw a 6 year old that looked normal, doing something that showed to them a little girl with great need.
Those who knew Anna, and how far she had come from saw the same steps taken, as great strives, and the beginning of more progress to come.
I saw my self holding tight to my walker taking the next step that my Father was telling me to take, hearing Him cheering me on,
“YES, daughter, that's it!”
It was then, I realized how I lose something very precious, when I stand like those who look on from the outside without understanding, at how very significant these steps are.
Whether I find myself behind the walker straining to take the next step, or on the side lines, cheering others on, may I never lose sight, that obeying my Father's call is the key to reaching His mission for my life, however small that step may appear.
