This will be short.
Sometimes, we get to a bad place in our lives, and sometimes we are the ones behind the wheel. We arrive and wonder how in the world we got to this point. What did I do to arrive here?
That is not the only question to ask, and although it is important to understand how we got to our lowest points, the most important questions to ask are, “HOW DO I CLIMB BACK OUT?” and “AM I WILLING TO MAKE THAT CLIMB?”
You see, deep down we all know what the right decisions are, but because we are human, we don’t always make the right decisions. It’s in our nature, so in other words, we are naturally predispositioned to do that. And we are not superhuman because that would be supernatural. That means that if we are willing to climb out, we probably aren’t going to be able to do it alone. It’s our nature to sin. That’s how we got into this hole in the first place.
Well, I am willing to climb out, but I am not supernatural! That’s where God come in. It’s a lot easier to make the climb with God than it is without Him.
Although my week has been rough, I know there are people out there who hurt worse and have felt greater loss. “Hey, God! I am ready to make that climb!” It starts with the first step. May today be the day you take your first step and climb.
