The Long Road...

I have often felt that journey of my life reflects the old saying, "One step forward, two steps back."  For every time I feel I've progressed, it seems like I slide back.

The truth is, we are always moving.  We are either moving closer to Christ, or we are moving away.  We are either allowing Him to work in us, or we are resisting.  Even if we just feel like we're stagnant...we are going in reverse.  Even if we feel like we are "trying, trying, trying" and cannot see any growth, we are really moving toward Him.

And so it is with recovery from anxiety.  Even if it feels like I am only regressing some days, I have to remind myself:  You are doing everything you can to move forward.  Just because you can't SEE the progress doesn't mean it isn't happening.

Sometimes we take giant leaps; others, we take baby steps.

Either way, we're moving.

In Him

In Christ alone, my hope is found...

Why is this tunnel so dark, Lord,
And why can't I seem to see any light
At the end of it?

I want my life back.
