Each path the Lord leads us on prepares us for the one that follows, but always remember it is a journey closer to Him.
I have to smile as I compare this journey with the game Chutes and Ladders.
Some acts of healing, behavior changes and progress get us closer to Him quickly but just as easily, if we are not careful, we can slide down and fall back. One good thing though, we are all winners and can reach him. Some of us just take longer, that’s all.
