Most of us have two eyes, two ears,two lips, two hands, two arms, two legs and two feet. When ever one part moves the other parts must follow. For example, let's take a look at our eyes. How many of us can make one stay completely still while sending the other to look in another direction. Ok, let's say someone may be able but most are not capable of doing so.
Now, let us consider our legs. How many of us can walk with one leg going forward and the other leg remain in place. It's rather difficult to move forward and stand still at the same time.
From time to time I sit thinking about where I am, where I have come from and where I desire to go. I wonder if I am on the right path to reaching my expected end. I consider how I arrived to the place where I am and in thinking, all I can say is thank God for using all my parts, for giving me all the tools (signs) I need to grow and be successful while keeping Him as the foundation for all that I do.
As we journey through life there are many roads. Some made of dirt, some gravel, some are smooth, some rocky. There are some with green lights and some with stop signs. Every now and again we come to roads with blocks or detour signs. Pay attention to the signs and don't be afraid to change roads when the signs say to do so. Don't get agitated or frustrated, for the signs are just Gods way of guiding your steps.
Consider where you are and where you desire to go and remember this, taking one step puts us at the half way point but staying with both feet in the same space keeps you stagnant...while each step places us closer to
You will always have opportunities for growth and there will always be challenges as you grow but keep going anyway!

~ Hebrews 6:15
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus
~ Philippians 3:12-14
Get wisdom! Get understanding...and in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her, She will place on your head an ornament of grace; a crown of glory she will deliver to you...when you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble.
~ Proverbs 4:5-12
