Baby stands holding side of table. Mama gently calls, “Baby, come to Mama.”
She extends her hands and Baby slowly takes one step.
Mama smiles and with arms still outstretched steps backward just a bit and gently calls, “Baby come to Mama.”
Awkwardly Baby takes another step reaching out to Mama’s hand.
A third time Mama extends her hands, backs up and gently calls, “Baby, come to Mama.”
Baby takes one more step and begins to fall but ….
Mama embraces her smiling and together they rejoice.
One step at a time…
God gently calls our name, extends His hands and says, “Come to me.”
As we steady our feet we see His outstretched hand and hear His gentle call,
“Beloved, come to me.”
Hesitantly we take a step tottering as we go.
A third time we hear His voice, “My friend, come to me.”
As we take a step we begin to stumble.
And His arms surround us and pull us into His powerful embrace.
Whispering to our soul His words of love.
One step at a time…The Lord encourages us.
One step at a time…The Lord calls our name.
One step at a time..His arms outstretched.
One step at a time…He catches us when we fall.
One step at a time…He fills our hearts with the truth of His love.
One step at a time….He is forever near.
“Which of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread, or a snake when he asks for a fish? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.” Matthew 7: 9-11
