When Moving Forward Seems Like You Are Going Backwards
As you all know my "word" I wanted to use for this year (2015) was FORWARD. Oh my goodness...it feels like I have went backwards. It is so funny because every time I get on "track" I end up going backwards, detoured, or derailed for that matter.
I was griping and moaning to the Lord about it becoming so frustrating and I was TIRED of trying to move FORWARD when all I was going to do was go back 4 steps. It hit me. My life isn't always about constant moving FORWARD without stops and detours along the way. Maybe the real test or shall I say issue isn't really the fact that I keep falling down the ladder. Maybe its the process of pushing through, moving forward no matter what. Maybe its not about moving forward and always having it smooth this year. Maybe the Word I felt led to choose and study was about going Forward through rain, sunshine, joy-filled abundance days, sad broken heart days, storms, and calm.
I am going to stop thinking I am a failure or that my life is on a hamster wheel of mess. I am going to look at detours, pit stops, and ladder of life slips as part of the process of moving Forward.
What about you do you ever feel like this?
