Today, I’m thankful for baby steps. This week, my wife and I had to have a talk with one of our kids about some struggles with his education. He was livid. He started to yell. We stayed calm. That is a small step, but a huge deal. We didn’t get drawn in. I didn’t get drawn in. And it paved the way for him to calm down and us actually still have a very pleasant evening. I’m not saying my temper and anger issues are all resolved. I’m saying, that was a baby step. And I’m thankful.
My goal today is to take more steps. Hang on to that peace. Keep calm in all situations. Be honorable and holy in all my dealings. And if I fail in that today, to remember my baby steps and my victories and get back on track.
Gracious God, You give growth. Thank You. Turn my baby steps into giant leaps. Take my baby steps and make them permanent adjustments and growth. Thank You for holding my hand as I walk and stumble alongside You. I am all Yours today. Do with me as You will.
