It’s hard to move on to the next day when the last day was a hard one.

It’s hard to take the next step when the last few have been painful.

Like a child trying to make it across a hot, sandy beach barefoot and exposed,

we must walk gently into the next few days.

Light steps keep the feet from burning as we try to make it to the cool waters nearby.

So, today, allow God to carry you over the scorching surfaces of this life, the places too painful to handle alone.

Rest in His arms and know that He is leading you still.

He is going to work in your life today.

Trust Him.

Rest in Him.

He is there.

Matt. 11:28

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Isaiah 42:16

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,

along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;

I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.

These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.
