There are many different times in life when we need to persevere through situations without seeing where we are going. I was going through a very long season like this a few years ago, and I recently found a journal entry of mine from that time in my life. I wanted to share:
“I feel like I am in a tall field of grass. I’ve been here several times before. The only way to get anywhere is to take one step at a time and just slowly move through it. This is what I deal with when I start tackling the fears I have and the obstacles that have been all around me.
When I try to let my walls down and be vulnerable, I start getting hit by doubt, fear, accusations, more fear, guilt, self-condemnation, my past… and the list goes on and on.
I take a step and this is always what happens. The fear and doubt become worse for awhile. I am so afraid this will lead me nowhere.The grass represents all of those obstacles in my way that I have to plow through. I need to keep going. I need to grab hold of God’s hand and keep taking one step at a time…”
I’m so glad I kept going, because God was most definitely at work back then, even when I couldn’t see it! The path I was on did not lead to nowhere. Looking back, that was a time in my life when I learned how to trust God so much more, and that’s when I started building deep intimacy with Him.
Are you in a season like this right now? If you are feeling stuck or unsure if you can continue, keep going! Lean on Him. Keep persevering and walking on the path He has for you, one step at a time.
