“When you walk, your step will not be hampered, and if you run, you will not stumble.” Proverbs. 4:12

My mother in law recently had a hip operation. We visited at Christmas and I noticed how carefully she was moving around the house and how careful we were about making sure the kids hadn't left toys lying on the floor that she might trip over.

Obviously we all want a speedy recovery for her and don't want anything to hinder her progress.

Reading these verses made me think about often in life’s journey we can become cautious and afraid. It may be bad experiences in the past or mistakes we’ve made and now we are afraid we might do it again. We hold back and play it safe. Considering every step and all the risks.

However God is bigger than all our mistakes - past, present and future. He wants us to look ahead to the future with expectancy and excitement. He wants us to stride with confidence and boldness assured of the fact that if we stumble he will help us.

Are you running the race God has called you to?
