my new walking shoes have been waiting for me to break them in for many weeks. I've been slacking on my normal routine of walking, but started back yesterday. my back was screaming at me, my arches ached, and I was winded at the end. it was foolish to think I was in the same workout shape as I was many weeks ago. one option is to give up...continue the lack of consistency. another option is to get back in step and begin again. one day at a time, one walk at a time. today in my devotions, I recorded "honor God in what you do and say one day at a time." each day is new to God. we may carry baggage with us from day to day, month to month, year to year, but why? what does that get us in the end? what better "thing" does God have for me each day when I allow myself to to live one day at a time walking with Him? I want to find out!
