One foot in front of the other

We take our steps one at a time, listening for God's direction. Sometimes it seems it would be a good idea to be blindfolded so that the steps we take are not our own and we would be forced to fully rely on God to lead us. That is not His way though. He allows us to blunder along sometimes tripping over our own feet, creating our own obstacle course. This is because He loves us so much that He wants us to freely choose to follow Him.

On the mission field it is no different. There are times we have to stop and listen because we can get so caught up in the needs around us that we lose sight of the step God wants us to take.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” -Proverbs 3:5
