The Very Steps We Take

The rocky path was hard to maneuver but I found if I kept moving, I could almost glide over the rocks and stones that lay under my feet. But if I slowed down and thought about the obstacles that lined the path, it would cause me to stumble and almost bring my pace to a halt. I knew I had to stay calm and continue even when a huge bolder was glaring out at me. My husband was now far ahead of me and I had to quicken my pace to keep up. I definitely didn’t want to be abandoned in the middle of the woods with no one to come to my rescue if I did fall. So my only option was to keep going forward. Turning back was not a choice.

Recently with the publication of my first book, I have realized how important it is to move forward and not focus on all the obstacles that keep rising at each turn. I am not surprised by them but definitely would have preferred an easier route.

It is at times like these that I peer into the word to find sense to this life and my own particular journey. Today I have found a gem when looking through the Message version of the Bible. Proverbs 20:24 states: “The very steps we take come from God; otherwise how would we know where we’re going?” This little verse brings so much comfort to me as I go down this bumpy road. Knowing that each step I take has been directed by God gives me the confidence I need to glide over the rocks and stones of this life.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
