Steps

The steps of a man are from the Lord, and He establishes him in whose way He delights; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord is the stay of his hand.

Ps 37:23-24 RSV

As I’m treated for ongoing health issues I periodically meet with members of my team (doctor, therapist, priest, and of course my dear husband!) to tweak my comprehensive treatment plan. After almost nine months of trying a combination of protocols that has definitely brought improvement–but not nearly as much as we thought was realistic–I’ve been pondering my options. In order to do my part to best live out my vocation as a wife and mother within my limitations I have–no doubt like many if not most of you!–challenging decisions to make. This morning I read these words and wanted to share them with you, dear reader. No matter what others may say we know that He who loves us more than we can ever comprehend has our best interests not only at heart but well in hand. All we have to do is discern His will and then put one front in front of the other, trusting that He will stay our hand and direct our steps.

And don’t forget the words of a wise man who walks the talk:

God is always good, and we are in His hands.
